May 23, 2023

Two Slippery Rock University professors of accounting, economics and finance received a grant from the Institute of Internal Auditors to promote career paths for SRU students as internal auditors.

Theresa Phipps, associate professor, and Melanie Anderson, professor, received $2,000 from the IIA’s Internal Audit Foundation that will be used to develop an internal auditing education partnership program at SRU. They will implement new curriculum that will prepare students to get a job in the internal auditing profession, and they will also establish a mentoring relationship program in Pittsburgh with Duquesne University.

The IIA is an international professional association for the internal auditor profession that provides standards, certification, education, research and technical guidance for more than 230,000 members.
