South Florida-based accounting and advisory firm Daszkal Bolton will reward faculty teaching and research excellence at Florida Atlantic University’s College of Business by establishing a fund with a gift of $50,000.
The gift represents the first endowed professorship in FAU’s School of Accounting.
The Daszkal Bolton Fund will provide support to one faculty member each year. The dean of the College of Business will choose a professor who has distinguished themselves in the fields of accounting and finance. The award recipient will use the $5,000 to support their work in these areas.
“Daszkal Bolton is proud of the outstanding relationship it has with the FAU College of Business.” Managing Partner Michael Daszkal said. “This leadership gift is intended to help the school continue to grow, as well as encourage other institutions to support the school as well.”
The Daszkal Bolton Fund’s first faculty reward was recently announced. The recipient is Robert Pinsker, Ph.D., associate professor in the School of Accounting. A certified public accountant, Pinsker’s research interests include eXtensible Business Reporting Language (XBRL), investor belief revision, qualitative materiality and auditor attitudes.
“We are honored to receive this gift from Daszkal Bolton, a leading accounting firm in South Florida, to support the important research and teaching that’s taking place in FAU’s School of Accounting,” said Daniel Gropper, Ph.D., dean of FAU’s College of Business. “This allows us to recognize and reward the excellent work being done by our professors and build upon the continued success and momentum of our accounting program.”
