Graduate Education

Goal

 Expand curricular and co-curricular preparation of graduate students for teaching positions as well as business, industry and government careers. Expand access to and success in graduate programs for those from groups historically underserved by the mathematics community, including women and people of color.

Possible Tactics

  • Partner with professional societies to promote innovative and effective programs and adapt them to local contexts. 

  • Find funding for pilot programs to connect masters-granting institutions with doctoral-granting universities, supporting the goal of diversifying the ranks of ph.d. Mathematicians.

  • Foster conversations about equitable criteria for graduate school admissions.

  • Find and amplify successful research-based mentoring models.  

  • Study the issue of preparing, attracting, and retaining US-trained undergraduate students in graduate programs in the mathematical sciences.
