Comments by Terry Hogan, Vice President for Student Affairs: "Dr. Douglas Mupasiri is department head and professor of mathematics. Doug has contributed so much in so many different ways. Consider that he represented Academic Affairs for over five years in the implementation of the University's new Student Information System; and was the founding chair of the University's Diversity Advisory Committee where he served for three years; and that he spearheaded efforts to improve student performance in math classes by math placement examinations to our student retention efforts. And you know that he has done all of these (and others) with a welcoming hand, a warm heart, and a wide smile.
In recognition of your exceptional commitment and service to the students of the University of Northern Iowa and in acknowledgment of your effective collaboration with the Division of Student Affairs, I am pleased to present you with this "Helping Students Succeed" Commendation. Thank you, Doug."
