About Us

The SEC and Financial Reporting Institute was created by the School of Accounting in 1982. The overall objective of the Institute is to promote exchange among academicians, policy setters at the SEC and FASB, and business and accounting executives. This broad goal underlies each of the Institute’s main thrusts: to sponsor conferences and meetings, and to undertake research of interest to academicians, policy setters, and business and accounting leaders. The Institute also periodically hosts informal meetings and roundtables between policy setters from the SEC and the private sector, as well as faculty, students, and selected representatives from CPA firms and industry.

The Leventhal School of Accounting is an innovator in the areas of accounting education and research. Our faculty design programs for a rigorous educational environment at the undergraduate, graduate and doctoral program levels. We are committed to creating knowledge and sharing it through leading publications and symposia.
