Allen W. McConnell
The Monfort College of Business has been through many changes during its first 40 years, but one thing has been consistent: the hard work, influence, vision and inspiration provided by Professor Allen W. Connell.
A favorite among students, McConnell’s primary teaching responsibilities have been in the financial accounting areas. He’s also taught in the areas of auditing, governmental and managerial accounting. He has served as department chair for Accounting and director of the Department of Accounting and Computer Information Systems. The Accounting emphasis received its original AACSB International accreditation under his leadership.
He has been honored many times by peers and professional organizations, and received the 2003 CPA Making a Difference award from the Colorado Society of CPAs for his professional and community service, and his extraordinary work with students.
Professor McConnell has worked for several CPA firms in North Dakota and Colorado, including the firm of McConnell and Bohrer, LLC, Certified Public Accountants, in Greeley.
The Monfort College of Business is grateful for Professor McConnell’s dedication and commitment to excellence over the span of four decades.
