Statement on White House's Nomination of Carl Wieman From CU-Boulder Chancellor Philip P. DiStefano

I am extremely gratified at the White House's nomination of Dr. Carl Wieman to serve as associate director for science in the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy. If confirmed by Congress, Dr. Wieman will be a dynamic leader in helping to form effective science and technology policies for our nation. He has been a peerless researcher and teacher, and has been tireless in his devotion to science education over the last decade, revolutionizing how we teach at CU-Boulder and changing the landscape of teaching globally and nationally.
