Slideshow: UAA and IRS Criminal Investigation Division co-host the Adrian Project
by James Evans, Chief of Photography & Videography |
The Adrian Project — hosted Friday, Feb. 7, in cooperation with the IRS Criminal Investigation Division — gave accounting students a firsthand glimpse at the day-to-day work of IRS special agents who “follow the money” and investigate financial crimes. This real-world, hands-on simulation featured students wearing IRS vests and handcuffing their UAA professors, who posed as the faux offenders. Students also had the opportunity to argue their case and prove probable cause in front of a judge thanks to volunteer participation by Steve Skrocki, civil division chief from the U.S. attorney’s office.
