Albuquerque Accounting Firm Commits Funding to Anderson Schools

March 1, 2000

ALBUQUERQUE – The partners and staff at Pulakos & Alongi have committed to a long-term funding gift to the accounting department at The Anderson Schools of Management.

The firm announced early this year a $15,000 gift over three years to enhance faculty development and involvement in the New Mexico community. Among the uses expected for the funds are support for faculty research, continuing education and professional development, according to Jesse Dillard, accounting department chair.

“Pulakos & Alongi are showing important leadership in making this gift,” said Dillard, “they have been long-time supporters of Anderson and our graduates, but this gift marks a new relationship between the firm and our faculty.”

In a letter accompanying the first $5,000 gift, Dennis Sterosky, shareholder, praised the Schools. “Based on the high quality of the faculty, it is our belief that we can help enhance the excellence of the Accounting program by providing these funds,” he wrote.

The accounting department is the largest in The Anderson Schools, with 100 graduates every year. In recent years, faculty in the department have gained international recognition for their research and writing in the field.
