The University and Professional Service award is awarded to the person that has made contributions that include the department but also expand out to broader communities.
This year's recipient has been at Towson University for over 27 years and has been committed to service at all levels and is viewed as a strong team player—willing to assist whenever needed.
In the department, she is very active in providing professional development for in-service teachers through workshops and consulting, and co-teaching opportunities. In the department she also chairs the Developmental Education Committee and has been actively involved in course redesign at that level. She serves on the Adjunct Faculty Committee and as a result usually takes on a large portion of the adjunct observations.
At the College level she has volunteered her time at recruitment events. At the University level she has served on several search committees for the College of Education.
One letter indicated that "her deep commitment has been far-reaching and felt by students and colleagues alike for a very long time."
Outside of the University, the awardee also is active as the current Treasurer for the Association of Maryland Mathematics Teacher Educators, a member of the board for the Center for Jewish Education and a member of the governing board for Hillel: The Foundation for Jewish Campus Life.
The awardee received a B.A. in Mathematics at McDaniel College and a M.Ed. in Mathematics Education from Loyola College.
Join me in offering congratulations to Professor Judy Macks from the Department of Mathematics.
