“I have always been motivated as a teacher to help students appreciate the enormity of an accountant’s fiduciary responsibility whether that responsibility is to an individual, a small business, or to a multinational corporation and its shareholders. Once they understand the significance of the accounting professional’s role, the fundamentals have more meaning and the bigger picture comes into focus.” 

- Steve Harrington
