This short video introduces the Math Alliance, its purpose and vision.
Math as a Force for Change
Training in mathematics does not mean that you will necessarily become a mathematician, but an advanced degree will give you quantitative skills to help address social and environmental problems that our world faces.
Community and Opportunity
Math Alliance Students and professors discuss the Alliance community and opportunities available to Alliance students, such as the Field of Dreams Conference and undergraduate research positions.
Mentors describe the opportunities and experiences available to students in the Math Alliance.
Math Alliance: Job Prospects
What jobs are available to a person with a PhD in the mathematical sciences? Besides being a mathematician, work can be found in engineering, computer science, statistics, biostatistics, government agencies like NASA, the Census Bureau, or the CIA, and working in multidisciplinary teams to address the complex challenges facing our world.
Mentors on Mentoring
Math Alliance undergraduate mentors discuss the value of mentoring.
Mentors Speak, Lester (Bill) Jones
Bill Jones, Professor of Mathematics at Xavier University in New Orleans, talks about what led him to become a Math Alliance mentor and his teaching philosophy.
Transitioning from Minority to Majority Institutions
Mentors and students describe some of the challenges faced in the transition from undergraduate to graduate education.
The National Alliance for Doctoral Studies in the Mathematical Sciences works to increase the number of students from historically underrepresented groups who go on to earn PhDs in mathematics and related fields.
History and Achievements of the Math Alliance
Phil Kutzko and other Alliance professors talk about the purpose of the Math Alliance, how it has grown, what it has achieved, and future expansion to more colleges and universities.
