Accounting Professor of the Year 2022

This year, SCUAA is pleased to present the Accounting Professor of the Year award to Professor Si Li, Ph.D., ACUE.

Professor Siqi Li, Ph.D., ACUE, joined the Accounting Department at Santa Clara in 2008 after earning her Ph.D. from the University of Southern California, and has grown to be a favorite accounting professor of many seniors.  Professor Li fosters an environment where students are not afraid to ask questions nor afraid to attempt to answer questions. Siqi Li’s passion for teaching accounting is evident and this has led students to look forward to her class.

This past year, Siqi Li has shown her dedication to teaching and how adaptable she is when Santa Clara University went online for the first 4 weeks of the winter quarter and then resumed back in person. She would call on students to keep them engaged and would explain concepts to them if they did not understand the concept beforehand. When students returned to the classroom in week 5, Siqi Li did everything in her power to make sure students felt comfortable and made the transition from online to in-person learning smoothly.

Professor Li’s reputation and contribution to teaching future accountants have not gone unnoticed, and she is more than deserving of this year’s Accounting Professor of the Year award.

Congratulations Professor Li!
