DeVries Nominated to Accounting Study Team

Associate Professor of Accounting and Information Systems Del DeVries has been nominated to serve on the Pathways Commission study team to examine the future of higher education in accounting. The commission is a joint effort between the American Accounting Association and the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants. The commission studies issues such as the shortage of qualified teachers with accounting doctorates, the need to revise the accounting curricula regularly in light of fast-paced business changes, university budget constraints and the need for training in specialized areas to meet professional demands. The Commission will hold its first meeting October 15 – 17 in Washington, D.C.
