On Monday, January 27th 2020, the Dean of the Faculty of Mathematics and Science invited members to the 6th Annual Celebration of Excellence. One of our members of the Department of Mathematics and Statistics, Basil Nanayakkara, was recognized by the students of the Faculty of Mathematics and Science Council for the Teaching & Student Engagement Award. Basil received this award due to his excellence in teaching and his commitment to helping his students understand challenging material. This is the second time he has been the recipient of this award. In 2014, with a completely different set of undergraduate students, he had also been their choice. Congratulations Basil!
The Department of Mathematics and Statistics was honoured by the Dean for achieving the highest financial surplus in the Faculty with the Highest Departmental Surplus Award. The Chair of Mathematics and Statistics, Dr. Thomas Wolf, wishes to thank the Dean for recognizing us and all members of the Department for their contribution.
