Nominations for the 2018 award are now being accepted, and must be received by December 15, 2017 to be considered. The Distinguished Teaching Award Committee strongly urges departments or individuals to nominate deserving faculty for this award. We recognize that there are many outstanding teachers in the section, but we can consider only those who are nominated.
The committee particularly welcomes nominations of individuals from groups (or type of institutions) that have historically been under-represented in mathematics or in the list of previous recipients of the award. The person selected by the committee will be presented with the award at the 2018 annual meeting of the Michigan section and will also, upon receipt of additional supporting material, become the Michigan section nominee for the national MAA Deborah and Franklin Tepper Haimo Award for Distinguished College or University Teaching of Mathematics.
The nomination form is available as a Microsoft Word document at the section's website. Send an electronic copy of the completed form to Christine Phelps-Gregory at firstname.lastname@example.org; please use "Michigan DTA Nomination" in the subject line. Email is preferred, but you may also send it by mail to Christine Phelps-Gregory, Department of Mathematics, Pearce 214, Central Michigan University, Mt Pleasant, MI 48859. Anyone may make a nomination (of someone else; self-nomination is not permitted), but nominations from chairs in departments of mathematical sciences are especially solicited.
The Distinguished Service Award recognizes service to the Section and is presented at the annual meetings of the Michigan Section. Past recipients of the Distinguished Service Award are listed on the Section's history webpage.
The Certificate of Meritorious Service recognizes service at the national and section level and is presented once every five years at the annual meetings of the Michigan Section. Past recipients of the Certificate of Meritorious Service are listed on the Section's history webpage.
