DePaul Associate Professor Kelly Pope and Video Producer Rick Salisbury have won the 2012 Mark Chain/Federation of Schools of Accountancy Innovation in Graduate Teaching Award for their video documentary, “Crossing the Line: Ordinary People Committing Extraordinary Crimes.” Sponsored by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA), the annual award is designed to recognize exceptional graduate accounting course practices and resources. Recipients present their work at the national Conference on Teaching and Learning in Accounting and the AICPA also makes the award winning resources available to accounting educators. The documentary features interviews with white-collar criminals and explores their motivations for committing financial crimes. It has been shown to students studying accounting at DePaul and other business schools around the country, as well as to accounting professionals. This is the second accounting industry award for the documentary producing duo. In May, Pope and Salisbury won a Contribution to Teaching Award from the Professionalism and Ethics Committee of the American Accounting Association.
Congratulations to Kelly Richmond Pope (Assistant Professor, School of Accountancy)and to Rick Salisbury (Video Producer for the College of Business)! They received the ‘Best Contribution to Teaching Award’ from the Professionalism and Ethics Committee and Public Interest Section of the American Accounting Association for their work on ‘Crossing the Line: Ordinary People Committing Extraordinary Crimes. This award will be presented at this year’s annual meeting in Washington, D.C.
DePaul will be integrating the Kaltura video content management system with SharePoint and Desire2Learn this year. This promises to be an exciting addition to DePaul’s roster of technology tools – and will improve the productivity and efficiency of faculty and students. I am particularly looking forward to seeing how faculty will now be able to upload and integrate video lectures and feedback directly into Desire2Learn.
Rick Salisbury has sent me a link to a page at CU-Boulder’s Office of Information Technology (OIT), which provides an overview of their Kaltura/Desire2Learn integration. This should give you an idea of what is possible.
Some good news for DePaul! Rick Salisbury forwarded me this article which demonstrates that DePaul’s Kellstadt Graduate School of Business jumped 19 points in the U.S. News 2012 ranking of best business schools. This is the second largest gain (after Case Western’s 28 point gain). This brings the ranking for the KGSB to 70.
DePaul’s School of Accountancy and MIS will be screening a new documentary film in February. Crossing The Line documents how ordinary people fall victim to white-collar crime at various points within their professional careers. Crossing the Line is a unique film as it offers the viewer the opportunity to hear convicted white-collar felons describe their crimes, corporate pressure, prison life and life after conviction.

Kelly Richmond Pope (Assistant Professor, School of Accountancy) and Rick Salisbury (Video Producer for the College of Commerce) have collaborated on creating a white-collar crime documentary project entitled, "Crossing the Line: Ordinary People Committing Extraordinary Crimes.” The 90-minute film will be completed at the end of November.
Kelly has assembled a series of short vignettes and cases created from the documentary, which DePaul faculty can use in their courses. If interested, please contact Kelly for details.
A trailer to Crossing the Line can be found here.
I think you will find this video extremely informative. We will be using this in classes here at DePaul. The video will also be used in classes at Texas A&M, as well as some conference presentations taking place over the next year.
