Dr. Mary Gibson

TITLE:Assistant Professor of Accounting
DEPARTMENT:Benson School of Business
LOCATION:Stuart-Bennett 106
SWU P.O. BOX:1975

Dr. Gibson has experience in non-profit/governmental accounting (8+ years), experience in for-profit accounting (10+ years), tutoring or teaching experience (10+ years), and management over 10 years. Her unique life experiences include working in the treasury department at Clemson University during registration, counting all the inflow of tuition and other receivables. She says, "It was my first experience on how all the money flows into the university but remarkably that one person was counting all of it. One student paid with $1 bills, well, it came bound by the bank. So, I sent it back to the bank as it was still bound. If it was not bound, I would have had to count every dollar!"

Gibson grew up in Central, SC and graduated from Southern Wesleyan University and continued to Liberty University, earning her doctorate in Business Administration with emphasis in accounting. Gibson has always been active in church, including serving in VBS, Sunday School, treasurer, secretary, choir and playing instruments. 

She says, "I believe and trust in God with my heart, mind, and soul!"
