Organizing Committee
Abstract

This workshop, a formal collaboration between ICERM and the American Institute of Mathematics (AIM), is one in a series of annual REUF workshops. These workshops bring together leading research mathematicians and faculty at primarily undergraduate institutions to investigate open questions in the mathematical sciences and to equip participants with tools to engage in research with undergraduate students. This will also be a research renewal opportunity for faculty who want to re-engage in research or faculty considering a change in research area.

The goals of the workshop are to promote undergraduate research and to forge research collaborations among the participating faculty. The majority of the workshop will be spent working on problems in small research groups, reporting on progress, and formulating plans for future work. Note that there are opportunities for participants to continue research activities beyond the workshop week.

Preference will be given to faculty who teach or mentor substantial numbers of minority students underrepresented in mathematics, students with disabilities, or first generation students.

Workshop Leaders:

  • Joanna Ellis-Monaghan (Saint Michael's College and Editor-in-Chief, PRIMUS)
  • Lea Jenkins (Clemson University)
  • Glenn Ledder (University of Nebraska - Lincoln)
  • Luis David Garcia Puente (Sam Houston State University)
  • Juliana Tymoczko (Smith College)
