June 10-11, 2019
This meeting will focus on developing math pathways for undergraduate students at the upper-division level to respond to regional workforce needs. Participants will:
- enhance their understanding of evolving career opportunities for mathematics graduates, interacting with and learning from representatives of business, industry and government (the BIG jobs);
- enhance their knowledge of expectations of mathematical sciences graduate programs;
- explore aspects of upper-division mathematics pathways - updating curricula and programs, soliciting resources and support, forming partnerships - as relevant to their own institutions' characteristics and missions.
The meeting will be hosted by Morehouse College and co-organized by the National Association of Mathematicians (NAM). Support is provided by Carnegie Corporation of New York.
