Mathematical Association of America Honors Prof. Underwood Dudley

January 9, 2004

January 9, 2004, Greencastle, Ind. - Underwood Dudley, professor of mathematics at DePauw University, is among six individuals who received a certificate of meritorious service from the Mathematical Association of America (MAA) in recognition of service to the MAA at the national level or for service to a Section of the Association. Dr. Dudley received the award yesterday at the Joint Mathematics Meetings in Phoenix, Arizona.

The citation that was presented to Professor Dudley noted, "Woody is unsurpassed in his extraordinary contributions to the [Indiana] Section... namely, assisting in promoting the interests of, and improving education in, the mathematical sciences in America, especially at the collegiate level."

It continues, "Underwood Dudley has been a highly committed Section member since his arrival at DePauw University, where he has served his department as a superbly effective classroom teacher and as department chairperson. Woody regularly attends Section meetings, frequently contributes presentations, and always is willing to offer his sly and appreciated advice, both informally and through service on the standing committees of the Section. He served as Section chair two times -- nearly twenty years apart -- and he has also served MAA at the national level."

The Mathematical Association of America is the world's largest organization devoted to collegiate mathematics education, with more than 24,000 members. Learn more at the MAA's Web site by clicking here. Read a previous story on Dr. Dudley here.
