Professor Jim Macklin was a faculty member in the Accounting and Information Systems Department for 28 years. After being a partner at the CPA firm Arthur Andersen, he joined the faculty in 1983. He taught the Department’s auditing course and created the capstone course ACCT 495. He held semester-long leadership seminars for aspiring student leaders for over twenty years. He was faculty advisor for the Accounting Association and CSUN's award-winning chapter of the accounting honorary, Beta Alpha Psi. In 2010, the Beta Alpha Psi global organization gave Jim the Outstanding Faculty Advisor Award. The same year, the University presented him with the Distinguished Teaching Award. The students have selected him twice as Outstanding Professor in Accounting and he received the Polished Apple Award from the University Ambassadors seven times. Jim held senior officer positions in professional organizations and participated in innovative change in the CPA profession. He was instrumental in creating student members in the California Society of CPAs. He helped to create the Los Angeles Accounting Careers Awareness Program that promotes career opportunities for minority youth. Jim is most proud, however, that his daughter Kristin graduated in Accounting at CSUN and has become a distinguished CPA in her own right.
