It was judged in the category “Math, Physical Sciences, and Engineering” against 12 other theses from the Mathematical Sciences, Data Science, Computer Science and Environmental Science programs and found to be the best thesis of 2020.

Now Emma’s thesis advances to the regional level where it will compete in the same category at the regional level in the Conference of Southern Graduate Schools master’s thesis competition. Congratulations to Emma and to Professor Dan Maroncelli, the thesis advisor.

]]>Dr. Haborak was hired as an Associate Professor of Mathematics and Mathematics Department Chair in 1971. He was promoted to Professor in 1976. He also served our community in administrative positions: as Assistant Dean of the College and Acting Dean of the College from 1971-1975; and as Senior Vice President for Student Affairs from 1979 until 2002.

Jeri Cabot who currently holds that position recalled:

*“George was a remarkable man. He built student affairs at the College of Charleston from the ground up. His work in student affairs was guided by the principles of student development, especially experiential learning and respect for diverse talents. He would take the time to send you handwritten notes recognizing something you did no matter how minor the act may have been. He always ended his notes with “Thank you for all you do for our students.” *

After serving as the Dean of Student Affairs, George briefly returned to the Math Department for a few years and retired from the College in 2005.

]]>This award its named for Sue Prazak, a beloved former CofC math professor known for her talent as an amazing teacher and who sadly died earlier this year. The award is given each year to exceptional math majors who intend to teach mathematics.

]]>Any math students who want to follow in her footsteps might be interested in attending the Virtual Finance Careers Seminar on November 6th. (Click here to register or see flyer below.) The seminar will feature special guest, Dean Shao, as well as Cory Werkheiser from the Student Success Center. After a brief introduction, students will be able to “Choose Your Path” and enter breakout rooms featuring the following career paths and professionals.
