Jeff Hoopes awarded the 2023 Bullard Faculty Research Impact Award

April 10, 2023

Jeff Hoopes has received the 2023 Bullard Faculty Research Impact Award which recognizes a professor whose research has had a significant impact on the practice of business. This award was created through the generosity of Clifford E. “Clif” Bullard Jr. (BSBA ’76), CEO of the Bullard Restaurant Group, and his wife Rachelle Bullard. Their goal was to inspire and provide incentives for faculty members to consider the impact on the business world as they choose research topics and communicate their results. Jeff is the Research Director of the UNC Tax Center, and an Associate Professor in the Accounting. A committee with representatives from both the academic and professional community found his work on the effects of public and private tax disclosures to show the kind of impact that this award was designed to honor.
