AICPA Is Online For Teachers

BY JOURNAL

At a time when the Internet is nearly ubiquitous, we may forget that academics were among the first in the country to go online. So perhaps more than any other membership segment, theyll appreciate their own place on the Institutes Web site: the Just for Educators section.

Here, professors can learn more about the 150-hour requirement and whether they teach in one of the 44 states that have adopted it. One page gives instructions for ordering large quantities of key supplementary paperback texts for students. Resources for the instructors themselves include online back issues of the education supplement to the CPA Letter and a bibliography of pertinent publications. Also posted are conference descriptions, award programs and links to other sites for educators.

To help teachers advise their students, the Institutes academic and career development team has posted information on accounting careers. Teachers and students may download free AICPA surveys of accounting graduates and public accounting recruitment trends.

Perhaps the most interesting page on the educator site contains the profiles of pathfinderscutting-edge CPAs who can serve as role models for students.

Just for Educators is located at www.aicpa.org/edu/justedu.htm .
