Kirsten Anderson, teaching professor of accounting, received the 2018 Dorothy Brown Award from Georgetown University at the Senior Convocation on May 21. The Dorothy Brown Award is presented annually to an outstanding faculty member whose contributions demonstrate a strong commitment to the educational advancement of students. It is the only teaching prize for which all undergraduate students across campus vote.

“I am truly honored to be this year's recipient of the Dorothy Brown Award,” said Anderson. “Being recognized for my work across the entire undergraduate body is something for which I am very grateful. I have thoroughly enjoyed working with undergraduates at Georgetown for the past 18 years and look forward to many more.”

Anderson teaches Advanced Accounting (ACCT251), Intermediate Accounting II (ACCT202), and Financial Accounting (ACCT101). She joined the faculty at the McDonough School of Business in 2000 and also serves as director of the Oxford, England, summer study abroad program and as faculty advisor of the Georgetown University Accounting Society.

“Kirsten is a great role model for all of us. Her outstanding teaching and dedication to her students in and out of the classroom represent the best of Georgetown,” said Pietra Rivoli, vice dean of the McDonough School of Business.

The award honors the work of Dorothy M. Brown, who served Georgetown University for over 35 years as a faculty member in the History Department from 1966 to 1998 and as provost from 1998 to 2002.
