Undergraduate Mentoring Committee

Mission Statement

The mission of the Undergraduate Mentoring Committee is to provide resources for undergraduates interested in mathematics, with an emphasis on mentoring women. This will be accomplished through academic and social activities involving graduate and undergraduate students. The committee will also serve as a clearinghouse for information about opportunities for undergraduate mathematics majors.

Committee Chair

Leanne Merrill
Graduate Teaching Fellow

2013-2014 Committee Chair: A.J. Stewart

Undergraduate Reading Program

The Graduate/Undergraduate Reading Program pairs undergraduate students with graduate student mentors to supervise readings in mathematical topics of their choice. The program focuses on recruiting females, but all are welcome. Usually, readings meet once per week. In the early spring term, there will be a poster session for students to share their work with one another.

Here is a list of proposed Reading topics that was distributed to interested students in Fall '13, and here is a list of proposed reading topics distributed in Fall '14. There was a kick-off event on October 23 for interested undergraduates and graduate mentors. Undergraduates interested in joining the reading program this year still have the opportunity to do so - email Leanne your responses to the interest form (pdf).

Upcoming Events

The following events are scheduled for Fall '14 (flier).

REU/Summer Program Application Panel

Nov. 19 at 7pm, in the Math Library Reading Room (Fenton Hall).
The purpose is to discuss what these programs are like, why you might want to go, and how to apply.
