(Albuquerque, NM) Anderson School of Management's Accounting Professor Joni Young received the Notable Contributions to Accounting Literature Award at the 2011 American Accounting Association (AAA) Annual Meeting. The award, sponsored by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA), was based on Dr. Young's article entitled Making Up Users.

The Notable Contributions to Accounting Literature Award is given annually to work which has withstood a rigorous process of screening and scrutiny based on certain criteria, such as originality, breadth of potential interest, soundness of methodology, and potential impact on accounting education.
Anderson Dean Doug Brown recognizes the importance of the AAA award.

"Dr. Young's award represents a singular achievement. There is no greater recognition than to be honored nationally by one's peers."

This past year Dr. Young was also awarded the title of "Visiting Professor" at the London School of Economics.

Accounting Department Chair Craig White says Dr. Young is a highly regarded member of the Anderson School's accounting faculty, "Joni combines excellence in accounting research and teaching. Her work brings recognition to the School both in the academic and accounting practice communities."
