Professor Emeritus of Accounting George Machlan was an esteemed faculty member in the Sigmund Weis School of Business. He consistently modeled leadership, dedication and determination and displayed unparalleled patience in his teaching. He was especially skilled in teaching to each student’s learning styles and needs and providing help outside of the classroom. His humor, compassion and individualized attention was exemplified beyond the classroom — students saw him regularly attending games, recitals, plays and other activities. Professor Machlan retired in 2006 after 40 years of service to Susquehanna. He died in 2023 at the age of 82.
