Top 100 Firm RSM US announced on Tuesday that it has donated a $157,100 gift, via its RSM US Foundation, to the University of Iowa.

The donation will create the RSM Excellence Fund at the school's Tippie College of Business, kick-starting a number of initiatives in the accounting department.

“This generous gift from RSM is critical to our department’s ability to deliver outstanding educational experiences for accounting majors,” said Dan Collins, department executive officer of accounting at Tippie College, in a statement. “This funding will be used to bring in prominent outside speakers from the profession, pay for data bases used in classroom instruction, support our writing program and help with the recruitment of students from diverse and under-represented student populations.”

“This gift is made possible through the generous contributions from RSM colleagues who are University of Iowa alumni, as well as the RSM US Foundation,” stated Joe McCarragher, a partner at RSM US and a graduate of the University of Iowa. “I am honored to be a part of establishing the RSM Fund of Excellence, and grateful to RSM’s support, as we strive to continue to enhance educational outcomes for today’s students, and tomorrow’s business leaders.”
