In the fall of each year, the Committee on the Profession reviews nominations for Mathematics Programs That Make a Difference Award.

For Department Leaders

In 2004, the AMS Committee on the Profession created a series of information statements relating to the evaluation of mathematicians. The goal of this series of statements on the culture of research and scholarship in mathematics is to highlight the ways in which the traditions in mathematics may differ from those in other disciplines, especially other sciences and engineering.
