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.

Undergraduate Reading Program

This program pairs graduate students with undergraduate math majors in order to discuss a mathematical topic, not necessarily covered in an offered course, in a high amount of detail. This could be an expository topic or original research, but it will in some way give undergraduates an idea of what mathematical research entails. A culminating poster session will give the undergraduates who participate in the mentoring program a chance to present the work they've done.

Here is a list of proposed Reading topics that was distributed to interested students last fall.

Upcoming Events

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

Graduate School Application Panel

Oct. 21 at 7pm, in the Math Library Reading Room (Fenton Hall).
The purpose is to discuss what graduate school is like, why you might want to go, and how to apply.

Undergraduate Meet-and-Greet

Oct. 23 at 7pm, in Fenton Lounge.
This event will serve as an introduction to the Undergraduate Reading Program, where undergraduates can meet graduate students and learn about possible reading topics.

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.
