Ledger & Quill

​​​​​Ledger & Quill is the donor society of alumni and friends of DePaul University’s School of Accountancy & MIS. Established in 1972, L&Q provides ongoing financial support toward student scholarships, faculty development, and sponsorship of the school’s programs and activities.

Advisory Board

The Advisory Board provides input and advice to the director on the development and execution of the school’s strategies — curriculum, student development and external engagement.

Board members are ambassadors, advocates, and supporters of the School’s mission and values as well as its strategic plan and annual goals.


Each year, the school awards more than $500,000 in academic scholarships to more than 200 students. This funding is made possible by the generous support of each member of L&Q, and it helps the school attract and educate high achieving students to become professionals in their field.


The school has one of the largest networks of accounting alumni in the Chicagoland area. L&Q members have opportunities to network with current students and other alumni throughout the year.

L&Q also sponsors a variety of events such as the Financial Accounting Case Competition, Alumni Reunions, Seminar Series and more. These activities enhance the student and alumni experience with the School of Accountancy & MIS.
