In recognition of the pledge, the Tull School of Accounting will designate a Reznick Group Teaching Fellow. The funds for the teaching fellowship will be used to support faculty research and teaching, student organizations and scholarships, and other priorities for the school.
"We are thrilled with Reznick Group’s long-term commitment to the Tull School," said Ben Ayers, the school’s director. "As a firm, they have experienced tremendous growth in recent years and provided great opportunities for many of our graduates. We are very pleased that Reznick has chosen to make such a generous investment in our programs and students."
"One of our guiding principles at Reznick Group is not only continuing education for our staff but to contribute to quality programs at the collegiate level," said Wes Hudson, managing partner of Reznick Group’s Atlanta office. "To that end, we believe our support of the J.M. Tull School of Accounting helps the University of Georgia give a premier foundation for its students. We are proud and honored to be associated with the Terry College of Business."
UGA’s School of Accounting was one of the first in the nation to be established as a separate professional school within a college of business. In 1982, it was renamed the J.M. Tull School of Accounting after receiving an endowment from the J.M. Tull Charitable Foundation of Atlanta. The school’s undergraduate and master’s programs are ranked among the top 10 by Public Accounting Report and rated among the top 20 accounting programs by U.S. News & World Report, and the school’s faculty is well known for its teaching, research and service to the accounting profession.
