- Congratulations to Brendt Gerics, winner of the 2016 W. E. Briggs Teaching Excellence Award.
- Prof. Sean O'Rourke has received a grant from the NSF Energy, Power, Control and Networks (EPCN) Program (for $296,558 over 24 months). The project involves a collaboration with Prof. Behrouz Touri, who is in the Department of Electrical, Computer, and Energy Engineering at CU Boulder. The goal of the project is to study universal controllability properties of random systems, and involves topics in engineering, applied mathematics, and pure mathematics.
- The University of Colorado, Boulder, has just been awarded an NSF grant to study the implementation of sustainable active learning strategies in the sequence of courses Precalculus, Calculus 1, and Calculus 2. This $3,000,000, five-year award is a collaborative grant involving UCB, the University of Nebraska, San Diego State University, and the APLU. Rob Tubbs is the UCB PI with co-PIs David Grant (Math) and David Webb (School of Education). The awardees first will study and document the characteristics of 6 departments that are already employing sustainable active learning strategies in the Precalc-Calc 2 sequence, including UCB. They will then solicit applications from, and award funding to, up to 9 other institutions to support their attempts to introduce active learning into Precalc-Calc 2 in a sustainable way. A major focus of the grant is to study how these 9 institutions adapt to accommodate these changes.
- Professor Martin Walter has been honored with a 2016 Boulder Faculty Assembly Award for Excellence in Leadership and Service. The BFA Excellence Awards, sponsored by the Office of the Chancellor, specifically recognize outstanding work and a concerted effort to make advances in the academy.
- Congratulations to Matthew Grimes, Jared Nishikawa, and Keli Parker, winners of the 2016 Burton W. Jones Teaching Excellence Award
- Professor Eric Stade has been honored with a 2015 CU Best Should Teach Gold Award. The Best Should Teach Initiative strives to acknowledge excellence in teaching and academic leadership.
