Building a Culture of Diversity in Higher Education: Obstacles and Success 

Richard Tapia, the 2010 awardee of the National Medal of Science, is a mathematician in Rice University's Computational and Applied Mathematics Department. He holds the rank of University Professor, the university's highest academic title awarded to only six individuals in the university's history. Among his many honors, Richard Tapia was an awardee of the 2014 Vannevar Bush award, elected to the National Academy of Engineering, the first Hispanic to receive this honor, and honorary doctorates from Carnegie Mellon University, Colorado School of Mines, University of Nevada, and Claremont Graduate University. Two professional conferences have been named in his honor: the Richard Tapia Celebration of Diversity in Computing Conference and the Blackwell-Tapia Mathematics Conference. Tapia served on the National Science Board from 1996-2002. Because of his leadership, Rice University is recognized as a national leader in the preparation of women and underrepresented minority doctoral degree recipients in science, engineering, and mathematics.
