    Call for nominations for the Mu Sigma Rho award for junior faculty
    This award is given in recognition of a faculty member who has made significant contributions
    to the success of undergraduate students in Statistics. Recipients will be early in their career; they will not yet be tenured, and they might or might not be in a tenure-track position.
    George McCabe's mentoring of early-career faculty and impacts in statistical education are the
    inspirations for this award. Throughout his 50 years at Purdue, George was active in mentoring
    both faculty and students and was pivotal in the growth and success of Purdue University's
    Statistical Consulting Service. His accessible books on the "Practice of Statistics" (co-authored
    with David Moore et al.) have been used by countless students, for more than 30 years. George
    dedicated a great deal of time to the success of Mu Sigma Rho, including serving as President
    during 2011-2013.
    Each nomination should include:
    (1) a cover letter,
    (2) the nominee's curriculum vitae,
    (3) a summary of the nominee's teaching and educational activities,
    (4) a draft of a citation briefly describing the nominee's accomplishments, and
    (5) three letters supporting the nomination. At least one letter should come from a colleague
    of the nominee.
    If a nominee is not selected for the award for 2023, the nomination will remain active for the
    following year 2024, unless the nominating institution chooses to put forward another nominee.
    The recipient of the award will be notified around mid-March 2023 and will be presented a
    plaque at JSM
    Nominations should be sent to Charlie Smith, MSR VP, at bmasmith@ncsu.edu by Monday,
    February 6, 2023. Please include all nomination material in a single PDF document.
