The Mathematics Department will welcome alumni and friends during the 2017 Joint Mathematics Meetings (JMM) in Atlanta at a special reception on Friday, January 6, from 7:00 – 8:30 pm at the Atlanta Marriott Marquis in room M102. Please join us for hors d’oeuvres and beverages and good conversation with new and old friends!
In addition to gathering friends and alumni, we will be honoring mathematics professor Tevian Dray, winner of the Deborah and Franklin Teppo Haimo Award for Distinguished College or University Teaching of Mathematics. The Mathematical Association of America (MAA) award honors teachers who have been widely recognized as extraordinarily successful and whose teaching effectiveness has been shown to have had influence beyond their own institutions. Please join us in congratulating, Tevian, who will receive the award at JMM 2017.
This is a great opportunity for alumni, friends and faculty to reunite and catch up. There is much good news to share!
If you aren’t attending JMM, consider attending or participating as an industry speaker or panelist next year. JMM is an excellent place to cultivate strong connections with academia and industry and to grow your professional network. One of our College’s strategic goals is to foster strong connections among academic, industry and government mathematicians and scientists.
Many faculty and graduate students in the Department of Mathematics will be presenting talks at JMM this year.
