Institute Honors Pincus As Outstanding Educator

Karen V. Pincus received the AICPA 2006 Distinguished Achievement in Accounting Education Award. AICPA Chair Leslie Murphy presented the award at the spring council meeting in Salt Lake City.

“The future of our profession is built on the quality and the number of the young people who join us. That, in turn, depends on whether quality people decide to study accounting and how well they are trained in their collegiate and post-collegiate education. The Institute annually selects a member of the academic community who best serves these truths to receive the award,” Murphy said.

Pincus is the department chair and the S. Robson Walton Professor of Accounting at the University of Arkansas. She has been honored many times for her teaching excellence, curriculum development and service to the accounting academic and practicing professions. She currently is a member of the AICPA Nominations Committee and is past chair of the Precertification Education Executive Committee. From 2002 to 2005, she was an elected member-at-large of the AICPA governing council.
