Special PIMS Seminar: Center for Women in Mathematics at Smith College

  • Date: 09/17/2009

Women still represent significantly less than half of math graduate students and faculty, despite the fact that they are majoring in math at higher rates. Women often don't choose math or get serious about mathematics until later in their education, when it is too late to adequately prepare for graduate school. The Center for Women in Mathematics provides a post-baccalaureate program for women who have graduated college but whose preparation is not adequate for graduate school. I will describe the program and the features that we feel are most helpful for encouraging success for women in mathematics graduate programs.
