Matt-Hudelson

Matt Hudelson, Faculty Director

My roots are firmly planted in the Pacific Northwest; my mother and grandfather were both born in Seattle and my sisters and I all grew up in Federal Way, Washington, attending various public schools in that district. My uncle, oldest sister, her husband, and my nephew are all alumni of WSU and I obtained my undergraduate and PhD degrees at the University of Washington, the latter in 1995.
In 1995, I arrived at Washington State University as a newly minted assistant professor in the Department of Pure and Applied Mathematics (now the Department of Mathematics and Statistics.) Eager to establish myself, I began working to prove results in discrete mathematics, publishing papers and doing the activities expected of young faculty members.
During a session at the following year’s Joint Mathematics Meetings, I heard Joe Gallian give a talk aimed at new mathematicians in which his main message was, “find your niche.” This advice has resonated with me throughout my near quarter-century career at WSU; for me, that niche has been to participate in and, later, play a lead role in our department’s ongoing reform efforts for our large service courses, particularly for the calculus for engineers and physical sciences sequence (Math 171,172,273). This has expanded to playing an expanding role in serving students institution-wide. My journey has included serving on Faculty Senate (currently training as Parliamentarian), as co-chair of the university-wide Course Materials Value and Effectiveness Committee (CMVEC), the faculty representative for the S & A Fees Committee, participation in the All-University Mathematics Committee, the CAS Strategic Planning Committee, the department-level Undergraduate Studies Committee, departmental pre-major advising, and serving as Math 171 or Math 172 course coordinator for numerous semesters, and project leader for our department’s initiative to introduce online homework, bring-your-own-device, and other technology enhancements to our large calculus lectures.
During the past two years, I have expanded my professional development to include participation in Learn, Inspire, Foster, Transform (LIFT) and the Provost’s Leadership Academy (PLA). LIFT cohorts are invited to explore new approaches and ideas to instruction and curricular development over the course of an academic year. In the PLA, cohort members participate in a variety of activities designed to foster leadership skills and interact with WSU leaders, including college deans and central WSU administrators. Additionally, PLA participants engage in a year-long leadership project; mine has been centered on understanding issues involving course materials with special emphasis on my Faculty Senate-sponsored role in CMVEC.
At this point in my career, I have become increasingly devoted to contributing to the instructional mission of WSU at an institution-wide level. My service activities over the past few years have been centered on the interface between students and faculty beyond the day-to-day classroom experience. I hope to continue learning in new roles and contributing to student success at WSU.
