Past Awards

Prize for the Teaching of the OR/MS Practice: Winner(s)
2012 - Winner(s)

In his 32 year career, Dr. David F. Rogers has demonstrated his passion for the application of OR/MS to thousands of students in 30 different courses at all different levels of learning.  David has taught undergraduate non-majors as well as Ph.D. OR/MS students, and in each class David emphasizes application of OR/MS tools.  David uses applied projects throughout his classes, from independent projects where students tailor their learning experience to using a variety of commercial software products to help with concept delivery. 

Perhaps the best example of David’s interest in application is a case study course for both undergraduate and graduate students, in which David’s teams perform real-world ORMS projects for major corporate clients, and according to one testimonial, “he does so with passion that few others possess.” 

Students benefit from David’s philosophy and energy.  One corporate testimonial stated David’s students “were able to hit the ground faster, and had a much better bent towards applied use of statistics then simply theoretical.”  Truly, as testified by a long-term associate of Dave’s, “faculty such as David Rogers, have grounded future industry practitioners in the necessary discipline to be successful.”   David truly exemplifies “qualities of an excellent faculty member in both the classroom and in real-world professional settings.” 

We present the 2012 INFORMS Prize for Teaching the Practice of OR/MS to Dr. David F. Rogers.
