News & Events
Though Professor Gibson passed away unexpectedly just a few days ago, he will live in our hearts forever.
He taught some of the most challenging subjects at ASA, including Statistics and Physics. However, he would have absolutely disagreed with the word “challenging”. He often said that there was no reason why all students could not excel at math. Which is to say, he believed in our students and was never deterred by their initial reluctance in taking his classes. Time and again, he succeed. He was able to bring the world of mathematics to students who had never seen themselves as math scholars. His classes, and the confidence with which they endowed students, changed the trajectories of many lives. His students knew their odds, and also knew they would be successful nevertheless.
We will miss seeing him and his gentle smile. A smile that could light up a room even on a dark day. We hope we may all remember that and carry his spirit with us.

President’s message on the current crisis We remember vividly, when on March 13, 2020, we had just made the decision to transition our on-ground classes to online, due to a virus that had been posing a health threat in other parts of the world. Over the next 2.5 months, this virus, known as COVID-19, became a once-in-a-century pandemic. It attacked the lungs, and it made breathing difficult. How ironic that, over the past memorial weekend, “breathing difficult” became news again. ...
