Welcome to the Spring 2023 issue of the Integral! This year we welcome four new colleagues – statistician Colton Gearhart and mathematics educators Josh Mannix, Jenna Menke, and Bima Sapkota. Each brings a wealth of experience, and we are excited to have them join us!
Congratulations to Dr. Mir Masoom Ali and Holly Dickin for their efforts to advance scholarship and teaching excellence. Mir served as Guest Editor of a special issue of the MDPI journal PROCESSES and, together with colleagues, Holly presented “Practical Tips for Student Success” at Ball State’s inaugural Student Success Summit.
Please see details on each of these, as well as other departmental events and accomplishments of alumnus Chris Leininger (Mathematics, 1997).
Our department continues to publish the Mathematics Exchange - our peer-reviewed undergraduate research journal. If you haven’t had a chance to read the latest articles, I encourage you to do so—a link to all the issues (available in pdf format) can be found in this newsletter.
