AECC announces grants to community colleges.

The Accounting Education Change Commission (AECC) announced curriculum development grants to Kirkwood Community College, Cedar Rapids, Iowa, and Mesa Community College, Mesa, Arizona. The two recipients will use the grants to restructure their first-year accounting courses. In most cases, these courses can subsequently be transferred to four-year colleges or universities.

In announcing the grants, Doyle Z. Williams, chairman of the AECC, said, "Two-year colleges are an important link in the education chain for many four-year accounting graduates." He added that 97% of four-year accounting programs grant credit for the transfer of introductory accounting courses taken at two-year colleges. He also pointed to a survey that indicated 27% of Institute of Management Accounting members and 19% of members joining the American Institute of CPAs took their introductory accounting courses at two-year schools.
