2003 Indiana Section of the Mathematical Association of America
Distinguished Service Award

Citation to

Carl Cowen

The Indiana Section Distinguished Service Award was initiated in 1993 to honor a member of the Section by acknowledging his or her extraordinary contributions to the Section and outstanding efforts consistent with the stated purposes of the Mathematical Association of America and the Section, namely, assisting in promoting the interests of, and improving education in, the mathematical sciences in America, especially at the collegiate level.

Among the many Section members deserving such recognition is the one individual we honor this evening. He has been one of our most committed leaders and he has always been willing to help the section in all ways possible.

This individual I am speaking of is Carl Cowen of Purdue University. Since coming to Purdue, Carl has served his department as a researcher, as a superbly effective classroom teacher, as a mentor of students and postdoctoral fellows and for a five year period as department Head. He has won both sectional and national awards for his outstanding record as a teacher.

Carl has twice served the Indiana section as chair and he served as the Section's Governor from 1996 to 1999. He has also served on numerous national MAA committees, and he is currently serving as first vice-president for the MAA. In many ways he has been an example of the ideal section member.

Congratulations to Carl Cowen, the recipient of the Distinguished Service Award.
