The MAA’s four core values—community, inclusivity, communication, and teaching and learning—clearly explain what’s important to us. Named in honor of the co-founder of MAA Project NExT, the MAA T. Christine Stevens Award for Leadership Development will be awarded annually to a person or persons who has (have) performed significant, sustained work to develop leadership within the mathematical sciences, across the full range of professional activities.

This award is the Association’s recognition of the importance of professional development that seeks to build leadership capacity within the mathematical sciences. The Award will be given annually to a person or team (not a program) who has performed significant, sustained work to cultivate and strengthen leadership skills. The award shall be based on one or several activities that are meant to inspire future or current leaders who are committed to MAA’s mission, values, and vision. The contribution should be such as to influence the community and culture of mathematics, statistics, or mathematics education in significant and positive ways on a national scale or have that potential. Rather than being a career or retrospective award, this award celebrates effective leadership efforts and encourages the awardee to sustain their efforts.

The award is to consist of $5,000, a certificate of recognition, and public recognition. The amount of the award will be divided evenly among the recipients.
