Mark Peecher, Professor of Accountancy & Deloitte & Touche Teaching Fellow

Mark Peecher cares deeply about students learning, and he never stops learning himself.

He is a recipient of the College of Business 2007 Excellence-in-Teaching Award for Graduate Teaching. He teaches assurance, financial-statement auditing, and doctoral seminars on behavioral research. He also conducts behavioral and psychological accounting research.

A former teaching assistant observed how Peecher tweaked a standard classroom activity to conduct some on the spot exploratory research based on student answers. "So even though we were supposed to be teaching our students about a particular topic, we were also learning new things about that topic ourselves."

His work appears in Auditing: A Journal of Practice & Theory, Journal of Accounting Research, Organizational Behavior and Human Decision Processes and the Accounting Review. He has served as a member of the editorial board on Auditing: A Journal of Practice & Theory, the Accounting Review, and Issues in Accounting Education.
