Robert E. Green Distinguished Professor of Computational Science Announced

The Provost’s Office is pleased to announce the appointment of Professor Art Guetter as the first Robert E. Green Distinguished Professor of Computational Science at Hamline University. Guetter, who will serve in this capacity for the inaugural three years, will facilitate interdisciplinary computational-science programming at Hamline which will extend the current computer science program in collaboration with digital media arts, data analytics, and several other programs. He will be supported by a faculty computational science advisory board in his efforts. Guetter has an earned doctorate in mathematics at Northwestern University in Evanston, Illinois and has taught in the Hamline University Mathematics Department since 1987. He has been one of the leading voices on the faculty Computational Science Advisory Committee in articulating the strategic direction for computational science programming.

Robert E. Green is a 1957 graduate of the College of Liberal Arts at Hamline University and a 1996 graduate of the Master of Liberal Studies Program. He established this fund in appreciation of his Hamline experiences and because of his desire to give students the opportunity for interdisciplinary research in the sciences and math. Per the donor's wishes, the Professorship in Computational Science will be based in the Science Division of the College of Liberal Arts and will exist as an interdisciplinary position to enhance mathematics and the sciences.
