We are proud to announce that professor Theodore J. Mock, distinguished professor of audit and assurance, at the School of Business Administration, will receive the American Accounting Association Lifetime Service Award at the 100th annual meeting of the AAA in New York City this August. This award recognizes professor Mock’s numerous and sustained contributions in service to accounting education.

The Lifetime Service Award recognizes service contributions to accounting education over a sustained period of time through service to the AAA, service with the education efforts in the profession through involvement with the American Institute of CPAs, the world's largest member association representing the accounting profession, the IMA, and other accounting professional organizations, as well as for contributions to the education efforts of public accounting firms, corporations, and not-for-profit organizations.
