The Department of Mathematics has earned an award for an Exemplary Program in a Mathematics Department from the American Mathematical Society. This is the tenth anniversary of the AMS Award for an Exemplary Program or Achievement in a Mathematics Department.
In winning the award this year, the Iowa State Mathematics Department joins an outstanding group of top-quality departments. These award-winning departments work hard every day to deliver excellent teaching, to go the extra mile to support their students and faculty, and to reach out to users of mathematics on the campus and beyond.
Cliff Bergman, department chair, said the mathematics department at ISU strives "to be a well-rounded department that does good research, provides a good education for undergraduates, and a positive, nurturing environment to graduate students and faculty."
The award comes with a $5,000 prize.
