CEDAR FALLS, Iowa -- Alumni of the University of Northern Iowa's College of Business Administration (CBA) have established a professorship to honor Gaylon 'Doc' Halverson, retired head of the Department of Accounting. The professorship will provide faculty resources for enhancing the accounting program. Halverson will be recognized during the CBA's spring recognition gala at 6 p.m., Wednesday, April 2.

Halverson came to UNI in 1963, and retired in 1997. He served as head of the Department of Accounting from 1981 to 1989.

Halverson is being recognized and honored as one of those who helped lay the foundation for what has become a nationally recognized program. Today, more than 50 prominent firms from all over the country come to UNI to actively recruit, and UNI accounting students are consistently nationally ranked in the top 10 for first-time entrants passing the CPA exam.

For information about contributing to the professorship, contact Carrie Rankin, director of development for the CBA, (319) 273-7823.
