Pincus Is New Carlson-KPMG Research Professor Of Accounting at UI

The KPMG Foundation has announced that University of Iowa Professor Morton Pincus has been named the Carlson-KPMG Research Professor of Accounting.

Pincus, an accounting professor at the Henry B. Tippie College of Business at the UI since 1994, is the second professor in the history of the professorship at the university.

"Dr. Pincus is a talented researcher and a credit to the accounting profession," said Bernard J. Milano, president of KPMG Foundation. "We are proud to have his name associated with KPMG."

The KPMG Foundation acknowledges the central role faculty members play in the academic process through these nationwide endowed professorships, which are a tribute to the dedication of distinguished business school professors.

Pincus currently serves as the head of the accounting department at the UI. He previously was the Lloyd J. and Thelma W. Palmer Distinguished Faculty Fellow, and a recipient of the Gilbert P. Maynard Excellence in Accounting Instruction Award. Pincus received his bachelor of science in accounting from Temple University in 1968, his master of arts degree in economics from Temple in 1970, and a doctorate in accounting from Washington University in 1982. Pincus lives in Iowa City with his wife Mary. They have two children.

KPMG Foundation is a long-time supporter of accounting education and a sponsor of professorships at 46 schools. In 2001, the Council for Advancement and Support of Education (CASE) honored the KPMG Foundation with the prestigious James L. Fisher Award for Distinguished Service to Education.
