Professor Selig Honored at Fall Convocation
Fairleigh Dickinson University Honors Ralph Selig With Distinguished Faculty Award for Teaching
Teaneck, NJ (October 8, 2001)—At Fairleigh Dickinson University’s annual Academic Convocation, held on the Teaneck-Hackensack Campus in northern New Jersey on October 3, the University community celebrated the opening of the academic year and honored distinguished faculty.
Ralph Selig, Professor of Mathematics and Computer Science, received Fairleigh Dickinson University’s Distinguished Faculty Award for Teaching. Since joining the University in 1986, Selig has spent much of his career at the University’s New College of General and Continuing Studies. Here he has played a critical role in one of the college’s foremost missions: to provide lifelong learning opportunities to a variety of constituencies in sometimes unusual settings or circumstances.
As a mathematics and computer instructor, he has taught the traditional-aged students, taking them to the next level in statistics, college algebra, trigonometry, statistical applications and basic mathematics. He also has taught the adult student population, on campus and at off-campus sites.
Selig has been a stalwart representative of Fairleigh Dickinson to hundreds of middle school and high school students in New Jersey. He has taught young students in the Gifted and Talented courses and in University’s Middle College Program.
Besides being active on departmental, college-wide and university-wide committees, Selig’s expertise is reflected in numerous ways. He has made many contributions to well-respected journals like the New York State Mathematics Teachers Journal and the New England Mathematics Journal.
