The University of Georgia Franklin College of Arts and Sciences department of mathematics has received the 2022 Regents’ Teaching Excellence Award for Department or Program from the University System of Georgia.
The award showcases an outstanding department or program—selected from among all 26 institutions within the university system—that promotes, supports and recognizes excellence in teaching and service to students.
The University System of Georgia noted that the department of mathematics began with a clearly defined goal of reducing the rate of students who receive a D, F or withdraw in pre-calculus and calculus and then employed a set of strategies that changed the experience and learning of students taking these courses.
“Through a data-driven, inclusive approach, the department focused on course coordination, the use of instructional teams, and the reduction of large classes,” the award noted.
