Committee on Education Mini-Conference
Rethinking graduate admissions in the mathematical sciences

Friday, September 23, 2022 – 9:30 AM to 5:00 PM Eastern

Hybrid format: Attend either online or in-person

The higher education landscape has been shifting dramatically during the past few years and our mathematical sciences community has an unprecedented opportunity to shape the future of graduate admissions. Indeed, many departments are reevaluating admission standards and metrics, addressing issues related to equity and diversity, and large-scale changes to the academic ecosystem that are a result of the COVID pandemic.

The 2022 AMS Mini-conference on Education will bring together directors of undergraduate and graduate studies, department chairs, federal policy-makers, academic administrators, and other educators to highlight promising improvements in admissions processes and brainstorm efforts that can be implemented in the future. Participants will address a variety of topics including admissions rubrics, recruitment and retention, and recent trends in equity and diversity. In particular, the Mini-conference will facilitate conversations among attendees about how to better facilitate the student transition from undergraduate to graduate school.
