Indiana Section of the Mathematical Association of America
Award for Distinguished College or University Teaching
of Mathematics

Citation to

David W. Kinsey

The Indiana Section Award for Distinguished College or University Teaching of Mathematics annually recognizes the accomplishments and contributions of Section members who have been identified as extraordinarily successful teachers in the mathematical sciences and whose teaching effectiveness has been shown to have had influence beyond their own institutions.

This year's recipient is an excellent teacher who has spent many years leading and building the Mathematics Department at his university. In fact, he has spent nearly twenty of those years serving as chair or acting chair of the department.

Over all of this time, his main interest has been in mathematicas education. In particular, he has been involved in improving the quality of mathematics education at the secondary level. Over the years, he has conducted numerous in-service workshops for teachers, made presentations at regional and national professional meetings, served on various governing boards and is continually called upon as a resource person in the area of high school mathematics.

It is clear that his greatest love has been the teaching of mathematics. His students describe him as demanding but fair, challenging but empathetic. His colleagues say that "he has never wavered in his support for all of us . . . he has earned the title of outstanding mathematics educator the old fashioned way - hard work, honesty, noncompromising standards, compassion, knowledge, and self-discipline. His zest for life, his love of mathematics and his compassion for his fellowman make him an outstanding individual and an outstanding teacher."

It is my privilege to present this award to David Kinsey, of the University of Southern Indiana.

Dolores Tichenor, Chair
