The James Armstrong Award was established in 1978 to honor the late University of Illinois professor, James Armstrong, whose leadership fostered a spirit of cooperation between two-year college mathematics teachers and the mathematics faculties at four-year colleges and universities. The award is to be given annually to a four-year college or university professor who continues this tradition of cooperation and assistance with the two-year colleges.
This award is given at the annual IMACC Conference. Nominations need submitted before March 1.
