Dr. Richard A. Little, faculty member in the Department of Mathematics and Computer Science, retired at the end of the 2012-13 academic year. He had been at Baldwin Wallace since 1975. During his tenure, he received many awards, including the Baldwin Wallace Strosacker Award for Excellence in Teaching. Dr. Little's significant contributions over his 38 years of service have significantly enhanced the reputation of BW.

Dr. Little helped many students exceed their own expectations and many have gone on to graduate school, professional study, and other rewarding, contributing careers. He has brought further attention to BW as his stature in the community continues to grow as he as recently been featured as a speaker and an officer in both the Mathematical Association of America and the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics. He was selected as "Mathematics Professor of the Year" by the Ohio Section of the MAA in 2010.
