The Klein University Lecturer Award was established in 1964, upon the recommendation of the Faculty Senate, and honors a member of the faculty who has contributed with distinction to his or her own field of study. The Klein University Lecture enables that faculty member to share the fruits of that scholarship with the university community and the general public. In 1979, the award was renamed in tribute to the late Robert D. Klein, professor of mathematics, chairman of the Faculty Senate Agenda Committee, and vice chairman of the Faculty Senate.
