Tom Brinker, Professor of Accounting, was honored as the 2011 Outstanding Educator by the Pennsylvania Institute of Certified Public Accountants (PICPA). The award recognizes full-time Pennsylvania educators who distinguish themselves in the classroom setting, excel in leadership and teaching, and who are actively involved in the accounting profession. Brinker’s accomplishment was recognized in July at the PICPA’s Accounting Education Idea Exchange in Hershey, Pa. During a recent visit to Arcadia University, PICPA got a closer look at Brinker, who discussed the importance of accounting, the value of a global perspective, and what he enjoys about teaching.
