The 3Rs of inclusive graduate mathematics programs: Reimagining, recruiting, and realizing potential

February 28 to March 4, 2022

at the

American Institute of Mathematics, San Jose, California

organized by

Ruth Haas, Loek Helminck, and Abbe Herzig

This workshop, sponsored by AIM and the NSF, will build on recent efforts in the mathematical sciences to reimagine and rebuild graduate programs with an aim at realizing the potential of people who identify with groups underrepresented in the mathematical sciences. The Workshop will bring together leaders in graduate education, giving them the opportunity to develop tangible plans to take these efforts to the next level at their institutions. The Workshop will provide a varied mix of principles for designing successful programs, including examples of programs that have demonstrated success in creating graduate programs where students of diverse identities thrive, complete degrees, and are prepared for fulfilling careers.

Graduate program leaders with a record of success reimagining and rebuilding their programs will work with multi-person teams from interested campuses. Through the sharing of concrete examples, including discussion of obstacles faced and overcome and strategies for success, leaders in graduate education will have the opportunity to devise specific plans that will work in their particular campus contexts. Participants will complete the workshop with specific short and long range plans to implement in their programs, departments, and institutions.

The workshop will involve about 24 participants and 8 presenters and facilitators. Participants will apply in teams of 2 or 3 from the same educational institution; each team will include a faculty member from a mathematical sciences department, a departmental or campus-level administrator, and possibly a faculty member from one allied discipline.

If your team would like to participate, please apply by filling out the on-line form no later than December 10, 2021.
