Invest in the Future of the Profession
The Mission of The Academic Advancement Fund
The Academic Advancement Fund mission: "to carry out the educational and charitable purposes for internal audit education of The Institute of Internal Auditors, by collecting and distributing funds to support the awareness and teaching of internal auditing in post-secondary educational institutions worldwide."
Contributions allow Academic Relations to provide professors and students an opportunity to access the resources needed to promote and study internal auditing globally. Support of The IIA’s Academic Relations efforts is made possible through the Academic Advancement Fund.
An investment in the Academic Advancement Fund is an investment in the future of the profession of internal auditing.
