Thumb hugo rossi

Hugo is the former Director of MƒA Utah and will continue his involvement, but more directly in contact with the fellows and mentors, through advising and instruction. He joined the faculty of the Mathematics department in 1974 and has served as department chair and Dean of Sciences before retirement in 2003, when he went to the Mathematical Sciences Research Institute in Berkeley, CA for three years. In 2008 he rejoined the faculty at Utah to turn his attention to starting mathematics-teacher training programs based on content-driven pedagogy and to start the newly formed Center for Science and Mathematics Education, which still hosts MƒA Utah at the University of Utah.
