Doug Clinton

NIU Accountancy Professor Doug Clinton has been selected as the first Burge Family Faculty Fellow.

The two-year fellowship will support his work toward completion of a statement on management accounting that he is completing for the Institute of Management Accountants, the world’s leading organization for management accounting and finance professionals.

The statement will provide an authoritative overview of best practices for that industry.

Members of the Department of Accountancy’s Personnel Committee selected Clinton for the honor because his work “has the potential to provide NIU with substantial recognition in the management accounting area.”

The Springer Handbook of Acoustics

Thomas Rossing, NIU Distinguished Research Professor Emeritus, is celebrating the recent publication of the Springer Handbook of Acoustics.

Rossing edited the 1,182-page book; the retired physics professor began the work at NIU and finished it at Stanford University, where he has been a visiting porfessor for the past three years.

All 28 chapters are written by internationally known leaders in various areas of acoustics. Rossing wrote three chapters in addition to his editing duties.

Since retiring from NIU, Rossing has held visiting professorships at Edinburgh University (Scotland), Seoul National University (Korea) and Stanford.
