Elaine Mauldin receives award for outstanding service

Jan. 11, 2024

Elaine Mauldin was recently presented with the Outstanding Service Award in August by the American Accounting Association (AAA), a prestigious award intended only for rare events or milestones achieved by a member outside of their education and research contributions.

A past president of the AAA and two-term former editor of one of the association’s nationally reputed journals, Mauldin currently serves on the AAA Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Committee, the Nominations Committee, the Accounting Hall of Fame Selection committee and the J. Michael and Mary Anne Cook Prize Selection Committee. She’s also a FORVIS Distinguished Professor in the University of Missouri’s Robert J. Trulaske, Sr. School of Accountancy.

Mauldin started working for MU as an assistant professor in 1997. More than 26 years later, she’s still at Mizzou, now as a full professor, researching and teaching graduate students information systems and auditing. Mauldin said she can’t think about any of her accomplishments without the support she has received from MU, the Trulaske College of Business and the School of Accountancy.

“They’ve been really great about giving me some release time and additional resources when needed for my teaching or research,” Mauldin said. “For example, in my graduate course, Audit of Internal Control, I have received updated software and training, as needed, to provide the latest technological innovations in my classroom.”
