President's Letter

Happy New Year to All:

As we enter the new year, higher education continues to be under tremendous pressure on multiple fronts. Universities are being pressed to contain or reduce costs and tuition; students and their families are struggling with stagnant income and record levels of student debt; and technology and globalization forces are affecting historic teaching and learning models. In spite of these forces, the demand for a collegeeducated workforce has never been greater and the wealth gap between those with and without a college degree is growing, not shrinking.

As accounting educators and leaders, we have the opportunity and challenge of providing our students with both a broad and career-ready education that prepares them for today’s accounting and business environment.
