by Michael O. Garvey

Andrew M. Paluf, assistant vice president for finance and controller at the University of Notre Dame, will receive the Daniel D. Robinson Award from the National Association of College and University Business Officers (NACUBO) at its annual meeting in Boston next month.

The award recognizes an individual who has demonstrated a continuous commitment to the advancement of college and university accounting and reporting. Paluf’s selection was based on his service to the higher education community through his membership on several NACUBO committees and particularly for bringing together members of the Association of Athletic Directors, the National Collegiate Athletic Association and NACUBO.

Among his other responsibilities at Notre Dame, where he has worked since 1997, Paluf oversees general accounting, research and sponsored programs accounting, payroll, accounts payable and the cashier’s office and is responsible for financial statement preparation, tax matters, and all University accounting activities.

A 1980 graduate of Notre Dame, Paluf earned a master’s of business administration degree from Indiana University in 1984 and has been a certified public accountant since 1982.
