American Institute of Mathematics, San Jose, California

organized by

Original Announcement

This workshop will be devoted to establishing best practices for creating and running postbaccalaureate programs in mathematics. Postbaccalaureate programs provide a pathway to graduate school for students who have promise and potential but have not been adequately prepared by their undergraduate institutions or have had a break in education due to military service, child rearing, or similar life event. Postbaccalaureate programs are typically year-long programs, where students can build the foundation for a successful graduate career.

The main topics for the workshop are:

The workshop will be a forum for existing and potential postbac program leaders to discuss their stories and figure out what works and what does not -- and why. Certain structures that work in one setting may not be optimal in another.
