Presentations

The School of Accountancy (SoA) Mission Statement includes the following: “School of Accountancy faculty are actively engaged in academic, professional and pedagogical research to advance the accounting discipline, the accounting profession, and accounting education. Through research and professional development, accounting faculty continuously hone their professional skills while ensuring curricular material is both current and relevant. Faculty also fulfill institutional and professional service responsibilities, establishing and maintaining close ties with accounting firms located within the Gulf South region, thereby enabling the School of Accountancy to better serve this important constituency.” Although accounting research can take several forms, it is often measured by (1) the number and quality of published articles, and, (2) presentations of ongoing research before an audience of one’s peers. Presentations given in the 2010-2013 (March) period are listed by the presenting faculty member.
