The Iowa Section Award for Distinguished College or University Teaching of Mathematics is an award given by our section to recognize distinguished teaching. Every year a call for nominations should go out and members are encouraged to nominate. The awardee is honored at a meeting of the Section and will also be the official Section nominee for the MAA Haimo Award for Distinguished College or University Teaching of Mathematics.
Guidelines for Nomination
* "teaching" is to be interpreted in its broadest sense, not necessarily limited to classroom teaching. It may include activities such as preparing students for mathematical competitions at the college level such as the Putnam Prize Competition or the Mathematical Contest in Modeling, attracting students to become majors in a mathematical science or to become Ph.D. candidates, working with pre-service or in-service teachers, and so on.
** "influence beyond..." can take many forms, including demonstrated lasting impact on alumni, influence on the profession through curricular revisions in college mathematics teaching with wide-ranging impact, influential publications or innovative books concerned with the teaching of college mathematics, and so on.
