Haseeb A. Kazi, Ph.D., professor of mathematics and director of Study Abroad at Trine
University, has been reappointed to leadership positions at two national organizations.
“I am honored to have the opportunity to represent Trine University through service
to the mathematics community and profession,” Kazi said. “These activities allow me
to continue learning while I teach, as well as bring knowledge gained from interaction
with other institutions back to our undergraduates at Trine.”
In June, Kazi was re-elected to his third three-year term as a councilor in the Mathematics
and Computer Science Division of the Council for Undergraduate Research (CUR). The
division also represents the associated disciplines of statistics, informatics, data
science, cybersecurity and actuarial science.
Along with chairing the Faculty Mentors Awards, Budget, and Finance Committees of
the division, Kazi also serves as CUR’s lead liaison for the institutional Program
Review panel in the areas of mathematics, statistics, computer science, informatics,
data science, actuarial science and cybersecurity. CUR has appointed Kazi, along with
a team of other professionals, to conduct invited reviews for the above-mentioned
programs in US institutions of higher learning.
The Council on Undergraduate Research (CUR), founded in 1978, focuses on providing
high-quality, collaborative undergraduate research, scholarly and creative activity
opportunities for faculty and students. CUR believes faculty members enhance their
teaching and contribution to society by remaining active in research and by involving
undergraduates in research, and that students engaged in undergraduate research succeed
in their studies and professional advancement.
Kazi also was reappointed to a second three-year term earlier this year on the editorial
board for Classroom Resource Materials of the Mathematical Association of America
(MAA) and the American Mathematical Society (AMS) publications.
Members of the board are directly invited by the Office of the President of the Mathematical
Association of America (MAA).
The editorial board oversees multiple MAA/AMS publications, including several recently
Kazi also served for six years (2013-2019) on the executive board of the Indiana section
of the MAA, and served as an MAA mentor, as well as Indiana lead liaison for the Early
Career Mathematicians program. He received the organization’s Distinguished Teaching Award in 2016.
