Petruța Caragea Recognized with Cassling Family Faculty Award for Outstanding Achievement in Teaching

Petruța Caragea, professor and associate chair in the Department of Statistics, has been selected as a recipient of the Cassling Family Faculty Award for the 2023-24 academic year. This esteemed award, presented annually by the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, recognizes outstanding achievement in teaching.

The award was established by Randal and Lori Cassling of Omaha, Nebraska in honor of Randal's parents. The college does not accept nominations for this award, instead recipients are chosen from among candidates nominated for other teaching awards within the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences. These nominations are carefully reviewed and considered by a selection committee.

The College of Liberal Arts and Sciences will host a ceremony to formally recognize Caragea's achievement later this fall. This acknowledgment highlights her dedication and exceptional teaching methodologies that have profoundly impacted the educational experience of students at Iowa State University.

The Department of Statistics extends its warmest congratulations to Petruța Caragea on this achievement.
