Emeritus Status Approved for Longtime Business Professor
April 26, 2012
Penn College’s Board of Directors has approved “professor emeritus” status for Phillip D. Landers, retired professor of business administration/management. During his 43-year tenure, Landers was involved with writing and implementing the initial bargaining agreement between the college and Penn College Education Association. He researched, created and wrote the original bachelor’s degree in accounting and was involved in all subsequent revisions to it and the associate degree in accounting. More recently, Landers worked with the Salvation Army of Williamsport and the Internal Revenue Service to bring a chapter of the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance program to Penn College to serve residents in Williamsport and surrounding communities.
