Mathematics - How Gifts Make a Difference

There are numerous ways in which support is appreciated and needed in our department. Gifts help fund graduate students as they travel to conferences and other institutions to do research and present on their work. They also fund scholarships and awards for our talented undergraduates and graduate students. To reach younger generations and our local community, we conduct outreach to K–12 students through our Madison Math Circle and Talent Search activities, and we reach out to young women interested in math through our Girls Math Night Out! program. We also support the Mega Math Meet, which is the highest achievement of math teams throughout area middle schools. We also have renovations to our former library space to plan and execute, with a new Math Learning Center in our sights.
