Examples of areas for exemplary leadership include DEI, active learning, student preparation for non-academic careers, data science, interdisciplinary mathematics, faculty mentorship, or any primary areas of interest of the TPSE Math Advisory Groups. The recipient will receive an award certificate and a $1000 honorarium and will be recognized nationally on the TPSE website, TPSE’s LinkedIn page & newsletter.
