CLAS names Collegiate Fellows

April 19, 2010

The University of Iowa College of Liberal Arts and Sciences (CLAS) named Physics Professor Thomas F. Boggess Jr. and Mathematics Professor Weimin Han Collegiate Fellows in recognition of their distinguished teaching, research and service.

Han researches mathematical modeling and analysis of problems in the mechanics of solids, an area of importance in physical and engineering sciences. He has authored or co-authored five books and is heavily involved with mathematical analysis and numerical solutions of problems arising in medical imaging. Han served as associate chair and director of the undergraduate program in the Department of Mathematics, and he directs the interdisciplinary doctoral program in Applied Mathematical and Computational Sciences.

Collegiate Fellow awards, supported by a gift from the late R.F. and Maryon E. Ladwig, recognize senior faculty whose distinction in teaching and scholarship is matched by exceptional leadership in service to the university, the college and their departments. Recipients receive funding to support their teaching and research. They are invited to meet annually with Linda Maxson, the UI Alumni Association Dean's Chair of the college, and the college's associate deans to discuss opportunities for improving faculty life and undergraduate education.
