We hope that you will regularly visit this website for the latest news about the Mathematics Department.
We invite you to share your career experiences with our students, who are always interested in connecting with alumni. The Department, in conjunction with the Alumni Office, hosts Career Conversation dinners with alumni and undergraduate students.
At the graduate level, the Department sponsors an annual Graduate Alumni Conference that combines research talks with discussions of career experiences.
So whatever your degree, there are opportunities for you to come back to campus and share your story! And if you have the possibility of a co-op position in your workplace, please be sure to contact us.
Thank you to our Sponsors
The Mathematics Department gratefully acknowledges the generosity various alumni and friends who have established funds to support our students, faculty and programs.
Robert G. Stone Endowed Professorship: This fund has allowed the Mathematics Department to hire a series of Stone Visiting Professors. These are prominent mathematicians who spend 4-6 months in our Department making important contributions to our scholarly mission: they teach an advanced graduate course, give several high-profile lectures, and engage in research discussions with our faculty. The fund has also been used temporarily to upgrade a junior position in order make high-profile senior appointments. An example of this is the current Stone Professor, Jonathan Weitsman, who received his appointment in Fall 2008.
Ling-Ma Scholarship Fund: This fund offers summer support for graduate students. Generally, the summer support each year is given to a small number of PhD candidates who are working on their doctoral dissertations.
Jim Dow & Lucille Zanghi: Thanks to the generosity of Jim Dow ‘72, and his wife Lucille Zanghi ’72 (History), a portion of the income from their endowed fund supports the Bridge to Calculus, an enrichment program sponsored by the Department that seeks to overcome the achievement gap by promoting minority student achievement in advanced calculus at the John D. O’Bryant High School of Mathematics and Science.
