AWM Graduate Student Colloquium

The goal of the Graduate Student Colloquium is to encourage interaction and community among graduate students at all stages of the program and with varying research interests by gathering to hear about research currently being done by other graduate students in the department. The speakers will be current Illinois graduate students. The talks will be given for a general mathematical audience and discuss either the speaker’s current research, or a related introductory topic. Talks will be followed by time to chat and eat cookies. Although this colloquium is organized by the AWM chapter with graduate students in mind, all members of the department including faculty are welcome to attend regardless of gender.

If you would like to speak in the colloquium next semester or would like to get involved in some other way, please email Vanessa Rivera at
