Kazi’s citation for IN-MAA’s Distinguished Teaching Award reads, in part, that “This
year’s recipient possesses an impressive record of growth and recognition as an educator,
scholar, program director, and faculty president.
“Together with the new course development including the capstone course in mathematics,
he is actively involved in student advisement and undergraduate research. He has been
helping his students in securing study, job, and internship opportunities in the USA
and abroad, and has been pivotal in coordinating various study and exchange agreements
with foreign institutions. His willingness to go the extra mile has been recognized
