We are proud to announce that our director, Dr. George Reese, was recently honored with the Academic Professional Excellence Award from the College of Education at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. George received this award as a recognition of his wide-ranging contributions in leading initiatives related to science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) efforts, including working with teachers and administrators to offer professional development and mentorship, and supporting numerous research and outreach efforts.

He is the former president of the Illinois Council of Teachers of Mathematics (ICTM) and has played a critical role in the development of computer-science education discourse nationwide. His nominator, Dr. Mary Kalantzis, said, “Dr. Reese made it his mission to address the challenge of engaging robustly with schools and teachers in ways that they could benefit from the scholarship of the university.”

Congratulations, George!
