The IIA NY Chapter provides funding through contributions to the Internal Audit Foundation’s Academic Fund (IAFAF), university endowments, and individual scholarship awards. Last year, scholarships were awarded to students from Pace University and St. John's University in the amount of $21,000. Additionally, the Chapter is working to expand outreach to other Universities and scholarship recipients. As a result, and going forward, we have budgeted and enhanced our criteria for scholarship awards as approved by the Academic Relations Committee and the Chapter’s Board.
Dear Members of the IIA New York Chapter,
It is my great honor and pleasure to welcome you to the 2023-2024 chapter year of the Institute of Internal Auditors New York Chapter. As we embark on this new journey together, I am filled with pride for the incredible strides we have made as a community and excitement for the opportunities ahead.

Our chapter has a rich history of fostering professional growth, knowledge sharing, and networking among internal auditors across New York. In the face of ever-evolving challenges and complexities, our role as internal auditors has never been more crucial. Our commitment to upholding the highest standards of ethics, transparency, and accountability remains unwavering.
This chapter year, we are focusing on three key pillars that will serve as the foundation for our success:

We will champion internal auditing within organizations and the business community at large.

Some of the events planned for this year include a presentation to students at a local university about the importance of internal auditing and a scholarship program for students interested in pursuing a career in internal auditing.
I invite all of you to actively participate in our chapter's activities and contribute your unique perspectives. Whether you are a seasoned professional or new to the field, your presence and engagement are invaluable in shaping the success of our chapter.

The NY Chapter of the IIA and its local Academic Relations Committee have developed an ongoing program and various strategies for carrying the profession into the classroom and beyond. Our program will promote the overall mission of ARC globally while involving universities, faculty, and students in the NY locale and IA professionals from our membership. The NY Committee has established a strong relationship with St. John’s University and continues to support St. John’s in maintaining its top-tier status as a Center for Internal Audit Excellence.

Internal Audit Awareness Program
The IIA-NY Chapter is proud to announce that, with our collaboration and full endorsement, Pace University has been accepted into The IIA’s Academic Awareness Program!
This prestigious program has been created to recognize the commitment and effort universities are making to provide students with the information and skill sets necessary to choose an internal auditing career. The IIA commends colleges and universities that promote internal audit awareness and education through their curricula.
With acceptance into this program, Pace qualifies for research grants and will now be listed as an IIA Internal Audit Academic Awareness Program university.
Pace’s application into this program was fully supported by Dean Singleton of the business school, and the designated coordinator will be Professor Charles Tang, who oversees and helps develop the curriculum related to necessary IA skill sets, with courses including Internal Auditing, Advanced Auditing & Analytics, IS Security and Control, and Accounting Info Systems.
Pace University has a long history of having students recruited into leading audit firms and companies seeking internal audit staff and management. Pace is the number one private university in the nation for social mobility and has an extremely diverse student body, including large numbers of first generation students, and first to go to college in their family (key factors in social mobility ratings).
Our chapter’s academic relations committee is working with Pace to also apply for the IA Education Partnership program with the IIA, before this year’s October deadline.
