LS/MS MAA - ANNOUNCEMENTS

News updates:.

Do you have any new faculty members in your department?  New faculty need to be Louisiana-Mississippi MAA Section Next Fellows!  Designed for new college and university faculty holding a masters or doctorate in the mathematical sciences, Section NExT (New Experiences in Teaching) is a two year professional development program that addresses the full range of faculty responsibilities including teaching, scholarly activities, and service.  Each year at our Spring Section Meeting, Section NExT sponsors a program for fellows in which the needs and concerns of new faculty can be openly discussed with a regional network of mathematicians.  
 
Among the topics featured in the program are:

·         information on current trends and innovations in undergraduate education. 

·         how to establish collaboration and interaction between people from the many different kinds of institutions in our section, including private colleges, state universities, liberal arts colleges and community colleges.   

·         activities to encourage the participation of new faculty and their students in the programs of the LA/MS Section of the MAA.  

In addition, the Section NExT Program matches participants with mentors from similar institutions.  
 
The online application (see http://sections.maa.org/lams/next/index.html#Applictions) consists of a short personal statement and a letter of support from the department chair.  Section NExT fellows will be required to attend the spring section meeting for each of the next two years. National NExT fellows are encouraged to participate in the Section NExT activities, as well!
 
Questions?  Contact Clifton Wingard (cwingard@deltastate.edu), Coordinator of the Section NExT Committee, or check out the Section website at: http://sections.maa.org/lams/next/index.html  Deadline for receipt of applications for the 2014 – 2015 Section NExT Fellow selection is January 31, 2015.

Section Dinner at JMM: For anyone planning to attend JMM 2015 in San Antonio, the annual section dinner will be on Sunday evening, January 11. If you are planning to attend, please contact the section governor..
