LOGAN—A USU mathematics professor has been named the best professor in Utah for 2011 by the Council for Advancement and Support of Education (CASE).

Dr. James Cangelosi, director of the Utah Mathematics Endorsement Project, a program to train Utah K-12 teachers in mathematics, was named the 2011 CASE and Carnegie Professor of the Year Thursday as the most outstanding university professor in Utah.

It is the 11th winner in 17 years for Utah State. The annual award honors the top undergraduate teacher in each of the 50 states.

“The U.S. Professors of the Year program salutes the most outstanding undergraduate instructors in the country—those who excel in teaching and positively influence the lives and careers of students,” says the CASE website. “Sponsored by CASE and the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching, it is the only national program to recognize excellence in undergraduate teaching and mentoring.”
