Peters receives Livingston Professorship at Olivet College
Apr 27, 2011

Janine Peters, assistant professor of mathematics and computer science at Olivet College, received the Livingston Professorship award at the 2011 Honors Convocation held Wednesday, April 20 in the college’s Mott Auditorium. The professorship is the highest teaching honor awarded to a full-time, tenured faculty member at Olivet.

Peters, who resides in Marshall, was recognized by the college community as exceptional in her abilities as an instructor as well as her commitment to the college’s mission. She sustains engagement of students in the learning process; creates a classroom environment that is characterized by enthusiasm for learning and high expectations; and models life-long learning through continuous professional growth and development.

A faculty member since 2002, Peters currently teaches courses in the liberal arts core, the calculus sequence, probability and statistics, geometry, complex analysis and advanced calculus. She is adviser to Helping Hands, the college’s student organization committed to community service projects, as well as the math club. She is also one of the college’s faculty athletic representatives to the Michigan Intercollegiate Athletic Association.

Peters earned a bachelor’s degree in mathematics and computer science from Lawrence Institute of Technology and a master’s degree in mathematical statistics from Wayne State University (WSU). She has completed additional graduate courses toward her doctorate in mathematics at WSU.

“Janine is an extraordinary teacher who brings so much to her students and to the college as a whole,” said Maria Davis, Ph.D., dean and provost of the college. “I am honored to have her as a member of our faculty.”
