Committee on Education mini-conference.

Forming institutional collaborations to broaden student access

Mathematics benefits when we cast the widest possible net for talent. Mathematicians have a vital role to play in ensuring that our institutions encourage and engage students in the mathematical sciences, with particular focus on students from communities traditionally overlooked by, underserved by, and underrepresented in mathematics. In particular, we can do more to foster talent from a wider range of higher education institutions.

This mini-conference will explore examples of and opportunities for meaningful educational and research connections between PhD granting universities, master’s granting universities, liberal arts colleges, and community colleges. Representatives from funding agencies as well as established and burgeoning inter-institutional collaborations will participate in the discussions.

Virtual mini-conference, Friday, October 1, 2021, 12 noon - 5:30 pm EDT.

Cost: \$50 AMS members, \$100 non-members
