Nominations open for Iman Outstanding Faculty Awards
The K-State Alumni Association is seeking nominations for the Dr. Ron and Rae Iman Outstanding Faculty Awards. The two $5,000 awards honor Kansas State University faculty for outstanding teaching and research. These awards are made possible with funding from Ron and Rae Iman, Albuquerque, New Mexico.
Nominations for the 2015-16 awards will be accepted through 5 p.m. Sept. 21. Additional details, including official nomination forms, can be found at www.k-state.com/awards. Both awards will be presented during a reception at the K-State Alumni Center on Nov. 4.
Ron Iman earned three degrees from K-State — a bachelor's degree in math education in 1962 and a master's degree in 1970 and a doctorate in 1973, both in statistics — and continues to be actively engaged with the university. He has served on the K-State Alumni Association board of directors, was the alumni representative to the Kansas State University Research Foundation board and a past member of the College of Arts & Sciences Advisory Council; and is a Kansas State University Foundation trustee. He also was recognized with the College of Arts & Sciences Distinguished Service Award in 1996. The Imans also are life members of the K-State Alumni Association.
