Paul Valiant Wins A Hazeltine Citation For Excellence In Teaching, Guidance, And Support

Less than a year after earning a Sheridan Junior Faculty Teaching Fellowship, Paul Valiant of Brown University's Computer Science Department (Brown CS) has been chosen by the graduating senior class to receive the Barrett Hazeltine Citation for his efforts teaching the wildly successful Design and Analysis of Algorithms course each fall. Named for a beloved professor emeritus, the award recognizes excellence in teaching, guidance, and support by two members of the faculty and/or administration. Paul will be recognized at the President's Reception for the class on Monday, May 23, and he joins numerous notable prior recipients, including award-winning author James Morone, Barbara Tannenbaum of the Department of Theatre Arts and Performance Studies, and Michael Lysaght, founder and director emeritus of Brown University’s Center for Biomedical Engineering.
