CBMS Surveys

The Conference Board of Mathematical Sciences (CBMS) sponsors a national survey of undergraduate mathematical and statistical sciences in the nation's four-year and two-year universities and colleges. The national data collected on

  • Enrollments
  • Curriculum
  • Bachelor's degrees awarded
  • Course availability
  • Faculty demographics
  • Special one-time topics, which in the past have included:
    • impact of the calculus-reform movement
    • academic resources available to undergraduates
    • the mathematical education of pre-service K-8 teachers
    • requirements of of the national mathematics major

are of use to academic planners at all levels and department chairs seeking additional resources from college and university administrators. Survey results are used at the state and national level in making a case for greater attention to and funding for programs in mathematics, science, and technology.
