I-Spot: Why I Serve

"My previous PAC membership was directly attributed to my gratitude for the quality education I received while in the doctoral program at Iowa. In particular, Professor Dan Collins' dedication in mentoring doctoral students over many years has had a profound influence on the lives and careers of many academics, including mine. Dan's legacy at Iowa is captured in this lineage of Ph.D. grads who have gone on to enjoy success in their academic careers and are leaving an imprint on the lives of the students they help groom for careers in accounting."
