- October 2019-March 2020.
Program Review Committee chair for the
Mathematics program. The main duty was to write the self-study
report on the department. This took many hours of work. It
culminated with the visit of an off-site team to BYUH on March
10-12, 2020. We were asked to evaluate the department within its
national/international institutional contexts, provide
recommendations for improvement, and to offer insight on trends
and issue of particular relevance to the department. A curious
note is that the final day of the visit was the last day before
the pandemic hit. As a result of that, tied with the inauguration
of a new President of the University, this program review has
largely been ignored by the administration. We worked hard to
streamline our classes under the last administration, enabling our
students to graduate with a math degree in 3 years if they went
every semester. Now those improvements have been dismantled
because class sizes were small for upper division classes.
- January-February 2016. Chair for search for new Math Lab

Department. As a result, we have had several improvements that
have been implemented here. One is the introduction of tracks in
our major. We now have a pure math track, aimed at getting a
student into graduate school in mathematics, and an applied track,
which allows a student to pursue a particular area of employment,
or to pursue a graduate degree in an applied math field, such as
engineering, statistics, physics, or computers.

Coordinator. Responsibilities included implementing common
exams and finals, organize the teachers to create exams together,
typeset the exams in LaTeX, copy the exams, and make sure the
sections are running smoothly. Subsequent responsibilities in
Fall 2009 included changeover to online homework and textbook for
the students. Creation of online common homework started in Fall
2009. Class is currently taught using the MyStatLab system of
Pearson publishing. We now do common exams and homework for all
our classes. Teachers are free to implement quizzes or
alternative homework as well.
- 2006-2015. Math Faculty Lead in automating the functioning of
the Polyvision CopyCam webcams located in GCB 178, which takes
images of class / lecture notes. Automated the downloading,
sorting, and placing of the notes on the web for the students to
download and view. The system requires monitoring to make sure it
is functioning properly. The system broke down and was removed
from the classroom in Summer 2015.

Mathematics program. Many of the duties are the
same as the chair of the mathematics department (see below).
University service include dissemination of information to the
department, training, working with new faculty on their
development plan, mentor them, and guide them. The duties of the
program lead remain the same, at least in how responsible I feel
for them. While I don't have as many duties, it still feels the
same. If I don't work on things in our department, they may be
mislaid or forgotten. In 2020, I was the chair of the program
review of our department, which was also done back in 2013 when I
was chair of the department.
- May 2012-July 2018. Chair of the Mathematics
department. Many of the duties relate to Departmental

Bozeman, 2000. While there, I performed the best on the comprehensive
exams for all of the graduate students.
- Graduated Summa Cum Laude (Brigham Young University - Hawaii,
1996)
- Phi Kappa Phi (Brigham Young University - Hawaii, 1994-present)
- Academic Merit Full Tuition Scholarship (Brigham Young University -
Hawaii, 1992-96). I received full tuition for almost all of my time
at BYUH.
- Eagle Scout Award (Boy Scouts of America, 1989)
