Dan Maki I am pleased to announce that Dr. Daniel P. Maki has agreed to accept the leadership of the NSF Math and Science Partnership program. Dr. Maki is an outstanding mathematician and educator. He has been the principal investigator on the Indiana Mathematics Initiative Partnership, a Cohort 1 MSP project, and thus brings a strong commitment to and knowledge of the MSP program.

Dr. Maki received his Ph.D. in Mathematics from the University of Michigan, and then joined the faculty of Indiana University Bloomington where he became a full professor and chair of the Department of Mathematics. He is the author of numerous books and articles on finite mathematics and mathematical modeling, as well as on mathematics teaching and learning. Among his many honors, he has been a Fulbright Research Fellow and a governor of the Mathematical Association of America.

Dr. Maki has had long involvement with NSF. He received an NSF Graduate Research Fellowship early in his career and has served as principal investigator or co-principal investigator on numerous NSF awards. Since 2006, he has been serving as a Program Director in the Division of Undergraduate Education (DUE).

Let me take this opportunity to also publicly thank Dr. Diane Spresser for her management of the MSP effort over the past four years. Her leadership has contributed much to the success of this valuable national investment in mathematics and science education.

I very much look forward to the continued evolution of the Math and Science Partnership program, a key initiative in the EHR portfolio, under Dr. Maki's guidance.
