2022 Retirement Send Off for Adjunct Professor Chris Lee

Adjunct Professor Chris Lee taught his final ACTG 12 classes in Spring 2022. Our department is extremely grateful for his seven years of teaching. Congratulations and best wishes to Chris on his retirement!


Adjunct Professor Chris Lee retired from our faculty after 7 years of teaching ACTG 11, ACTG 12, ACTG 130, and ACTG 136.  We are especially fortunate that Chris chose to teach and mentor our accounting students during this time, as he had recently retired from Deloitte after an esteemed 41-year career. In the classroom, Chris shared his leadership experiences in client service and practice management at the regional and national levels of Deloitte. His knowledge of the accounting profession was also particularly impactful to our students because of his over 38 years of experience working with Technology clients in Silicon Valley. Chris will not only be missed in our department for his expertise in the classroom, but also for his care and consideration he showed all of his students and colleagues. 

We wish Chris a warm farewell and the very best ahead, as he spends time with his new baby granddaughter!
