The Arthur A. Volk Symposium is sponsored annually by Beacom School of Business to bring together students, academicians and business leaders for discussion of current topics of interest.

The symposium is named in honor of Professor Emeritus of Accounting Art Volk who gave 36 years (1948-84) of service to USD as Professor of Accounting and Director of the Business Placement Bureau. Through the generosity of many donors, this symposium has been established with the USD Foundation to perpetuate the memory of Volk's outstanding service to students.
