Paton Society

The Paton Center for Research in Accounting’s primary mission is to foster excellence in accounting research, teaching and student support. It is a driving force in maintaining the Ross Michigan Accounting group’s outstanding position among peer institutions. The key to this success is based upon the generosity of our dedicated donors.

Each year in June, we invite new donors into the Paton Society based on both their giving in that year and their consistent donations in honor of Professor Paton’s legacy. A Paton paperweight is mailed to Paton Society donors as a token of thanks for their lifetime contributions to the Paton Center.
