Allen McConnell Distinguished Chair in Accounting

Thanks to the incredible commitment and generosity of MCB alumni and donors, the Allen McConnell Distinguished Chair in Accountingrecently surpassed funding of $1 million.

The Allen McConnell Distinguished Chair in Accounting was established in 2009 in recognition of former UNC professor Allen McConnell and provides critical resources to aid in attracting and retaining outstanding accounting faculty for MCB students. These efforts were led by MCB alumni Cheryl Wenzinger ’72, Tim Bradley ’80, Debbie Lett Misegadis ‘78, Greg Anton ’87, Lee Wilkerson ‘80 and several committed alumni to honor Professor McConnell and the impact he made on their educational experience and lives.

The University of Northern Colorado's Kenneth W. Monfort College of Business recently named Jake Rose, Ph.D. the Allen McConnellDistinguished Professor of Accounting.

“As the #1 ranked researcher in experimental accounting, Professor Rose brings a valuable combination of top rated research, extensive engagement with industry and excellence in teaching to the Monfort College of Business. His experience and expertise elevate the stature of MCB and will benefit the students in the classroom. Rose is a perfect fit for the Allen McConnell Distinguished Chair, we could not have found a more perfect candidate to perpetuate the legacy of Allen McConnell.” – Sher Gibbs, Ph.D. Dean, Kenneth W. Monfort College of Business.
