In May 2001, Professor Dyne Pfeffenberger retired after 29 years of service to the Indiana University—Purdue University Fort Wayne (IPFW) community and over 37 years to the community at large. Dyne won many distinguished teaching awards throughout his career and was honored by the Indiana CPA society as the Outstanding Indiana Accounting Educator in 1999.

Under Dyne’ past chairmanship at IPFW, the Department of Accounting and Finance created a rich program of rigorous study, service learning, and professional interaction which continues to attract quality students and makes our graduates very competitive in the marketplace. Dyne was instrumental in the School of Business and Management Science’s AACSB accreditation and reaffirmation process.

The Pfeffenberger Student Excellence Fund was established in 2001 to honor his contributions to our department. The objectives of the fund includes:

  • attracting students to be accounting majors,
  • enhancing teaching effectiveness by acquiring special computer software and pedagogical tools,
  • supporting activities of the Student Accounting Society.

This fund exemplifies the importance of the “student” to which Professor Pfeffenberger dedicated his career.
