Six previous Accounting and Information Management department heads numbered among the guests at Professor Keith Stanga’s retirement reception on April 20. Stanga, the Andersen Professor of Accounting, will surrender his post at the Haslam College of Business on June 30, 2015, ending a 41-year career as a full-time accounting educator.
Stanga has taught thousands of University of Tennessee students and has received several teaching awards. He served as the Ph.D. advisor in accounting for several years and on UT’s faculty senate, undergraduate council and athletics board. He was head of the department for 10 years.
Stanga says he has witnessed much change at the university over the course of his 38-year tenure at UT. “But one important thing has not changed,” Stanga says. “Our faculty has always strived for excellent teaching and student placement into high-quality internships and career positions.”
