Please join me in congratulating Fred Mittelstaedt on his appointment as the KPMG Collegiate Professor of Accountancy. Below is an excerpt from Dean Martijn Cremers' appointment letter:
“A collegiate term chair honors a faculty member on the basis of his or her contribution to research and scholarship, teaching and learning, or service to the discipline and University.
This appointment expresses our appreciation, encouragement, and support for you and your continual efforts to make a difference in the theory and practice of the field of accountancy. The reputation and legacy of the Mendoza College of Business and the University of Notre Dame are built by exemplary faculty members like yourself.”
Congratulations, Fred, on this very well deserved honor! We are very fortunate to have you as our colleague.
