Accounting Teaching Scholars Honored

Apr 26, 2012


Students, faculty members, corporate partners, and alumni celebrated a year of accomplishments at the Accounting Teaching Scholars dinner and reception on Thursday, April 26. The Accounting Teaching Scholars, an Undergraduate Fellows program, are undergraduate accounting students who serve as discussion leaders and teaching assistants for the Smith School’s two introductory accounting courses while reviewing material in preparation for the CPA exam.


The courses are taught in large lecture sections, supplemented by smaller breakout sections taught by the Accounting Teaching Scholars. The scholars also provide one-on-one tutoring sessions during weekly office hours. They also get a chance to practice their organizational and delivery skills, and thanks to accounting and corporate sponsors, the scholars receive an annual stipend for their services.
