Calloway School’s Juras named PricewaterhouseCoopers Professor

Wake Forest University’s Calloway School of Business and Accountancy has named Paul Juras the PricewaterhouseCoopers Professor for Teaching Excellence.

Juras, associate professor of accountancy, is a 10-year member of the Calloway School faculty. He teaches Accounting Information Systems, Accounting Research Methods, and introductory and advanced levels of Management Accounting. He recently completed a summer sabbatical with PricewaterhouseCoopers.

A committee appointed by Jack Wilkerson, dean of the Calloway School, selected Juras for the professorship. One member of the committee was Larry Scott, managing director of the PricewaterhouseCoopers Foundation.

“I’ve been able to see firsthand the quality of the Calloway School faculty,” said Scott, who is a member of the Calloway School Board of Visitors.

“Because of Paul’s recent work with us, we knew his commitment to his profession and his teaching,” he added. “The decision to name him the PricewaterhouseCoopers professor was easy.”

The Calloway School’s partnership with PricewaterhouseCoopers began in the early 1990s. Dale Martin, associate dean for academic programs and resources, was the first recipient. The professorship has a two-year term that is open to renewal.

Recipients of the professorship are selected based on teaching effectiveness, innovation in classroom instruction and course development, professional interaction with the accounting profession and business community, and overall academic excellence.
