Change is constant, and in the Department of Mathematics that’s been a good thing. Over the last year, faculty, staff, and students have worked diligently toward some challenging goals, and the momentum has been contagious. The results have been incredible, enabling us to start this academic year with a stronger, more supportive department, focused on student success. Four faculty members were recently recognized with LAS awards: Jim Cliber for excellence in undergraduate introductory teaching, Michael Young for mid-career achievement in research, Hailiang Liu for outstanding achievement in research and Pablo Raul Stinga for Inclusive Excellence. Our faculty and students continue to excel, and we are excited to see where this takes us next.
