The Distinguished Scholar-Teacher Award honors annually 4-6 tenured faculty members who combine outstanding scholarship with teaching excellence. Selected by a committee of former DSTs based on dossiers containing curriculum vitae, teaching dossier, statement about how the nominee integrates research and teaching, external letters of support from distinguished scholars outside the university, and letters of support from current or past students. DSTs receive $5,000 to support scholarly and instructional activities; they also deliver a public address and may participate in an Honors seminar.
Aside from his major research contributions, Levermore is being honored for his distinguished advising of many PhDs and his curriculum work (along with Doron Levy and Ron Lipsman) on Math 246. In Math 246, we have transitioned from a traditional text to an interactive web experience with text, problems, demos and videos. The web experience is suited to the current generation, and provides student savings of over $150,000 per year.
