Women in Mathematics

Illinois chapter of the AWM

The purpose of the Association for Women in Mathematics (AWM) is to encourage women and girls to study and to have active careers in the mathematical sciences, and to promote equal opportunity and the equal treatment of women and girls in the mathematical sciences.

The University of Illinois Student Chapter of AWM seeks to further these goals by providing a community for women graduate students through our activities and to assist them in advancing in their careers through professional development opportunities. We also seek to expand the future community of women mathematicians through outreach to local students in grades K-12, as well as the home-schooled community. Our University of Illinois student chapter received the 2018 AWM Student Chapter Award for Community Outreach, awarded by the Association for Women in Mathematics in recognition of our outstanding engagement with the local community by highlighting women in mathematics and demonstrating the power and fascination of mathematics.

Be sure to register to attend the Spring AWM Mini-Symposium to be held February 9, 2019.
