- Lieber Memorial Associate Instructor Award (1999)
Frank Hodge's contributions to his department extend far beyond those typically expected of a graduate student. He has developed and taught a senior-level course, Financial Statement Analysis and Interpretation, which has been recognized as an important addition to the accounting curriculum.
Student evaluation of the course has been high, even though many students acknowledge its challenging nature. "He used real-world examples to help us understand. This was the best class I have taken in the business school," one student wrote.
Hodge's development of this course was cited when he received the 1998 Panschar Award as the outstanding associate instructor in the Kelley School of Business. "Some of our best accounting faculty used his class notes while preparing to deliver a similar course at the MBA level," said Jamie Pratt, chair of the Department of Accounting and Information Systems.
With fellow graduate student Nathan Stuart, Hodge has developed another course, Performance Measurement, which is not currently taught in the school, but which Pratt considers to be in the vanguard.
