Undergraduate Mentoring Committee
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.
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.
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.
