Dr. Gail Tang of University of La Verne is the winner of the 2022 Section Award for Distinguished College or University Teaching of Mathematics and a nominee for the national MAA's 2022 Deborah and Franklin Tepper Haimo Award for Distinguished College or University Teaching of Mathematics.

The MAA Southern California-Nevada Section recognizes her as a skilled and effective educator who uses effective and inclusive pedagogies, as someone who empowers students by highlighting opportunities for creativity in mathematics and has made important contributions to the research on creativity, as an accomplished mentor, as someone committed to sharing access to mathematics and her love for it beyond the walls of classrooms, and as someone doing the work of re-envisioning mathematics as a more inclusive human endeavor. We are honored to present her with the Section Award for Distinguished College or University Teaching of Mathematics.
