Nationwide Search for New Director of Sponsored Accounting to Begin in February
This week, Syracuse University Comptroller Jean Gallipeau announced the retirement of Cathleen (Cathy) Hayduke, director of sponsored accounting. Cathy’s last day was Jan. 13, which marked the end of her nearly 30-year career at the University. Cathy’s first job at Syracuse was to assist with class registration. She eventually moved on to the Comptroller’s Office, where she held a few different roles before becoming director of sponsored accounting. In that role, she was instrumental in developing partnerships with the research community, including providing instruction and guidance regarding the financial management of sponsored awards to staff and colleagues.
A Key Role to Be Filled
The Office of Sponsored Accounting provides support to the Office of Research related to post-award compliance with sponsored agreements and federal regulations governing sponsored funds. The role of the director of sponsored accounting is essential to promoting an environment of timely and responsive customer service to the campus research community while meeting necessary compliance requirements.
A national search for Cathy’s replacement, led by the senior vice president and chief financial officer, the vice president for research and the comptroller, will begin in February. While the search occurs, Toni Besaw, the assistant director of the Office of Sponsored Accounting, will manage the office in the interim period.
