REGISTRATION DEADLINE: Creating a Better Summer Experience: A DEI Workshop for REU Directors and Faculty Mentors
May 9 all-day

Research experiences for undergraduates have become ubiquitous in mathematics and participation in such programs is used as a tool to measure graduate school readiness by many graduate programs. Yet many programs have not addressed the needs of students who have been historically excluded from mathematics so that they may thrive in these summer programs. This workshop will provide the tools to assist with mentoring underrepresented and minoritized students in mathematics. We invite REU directors and faculty research mentors, preference will be given to faculty teams involved in summer 2021 summer research programs, to attend the sessions where we discuss building supportive communities of scholars, the science of mentoring, as well as a summary of lessons learned from NSF CORE grant on supporting students of color in the mathematical sciences.

Register by May 9th on https://minoritymath.org/reudeiworkshop2021/

ADJOINT Summer Program
Jun 21 – Jul 2 all-day

The African Diaspora Joint Mathematics Workshop (ADJOINT) is a two-week summer activity designed for researchers with a Ph.D. degree in the mathematical and statistical sciences who are interested in conducting research in a collegial environment.

The main objective of ADJOINT is to provide opportunities for in-person research collaboration to U.S. mathematical and statistical scientists, especially those from the African Diaspora, who will work in small groups with research leaders on various research projects.

Through this effort, MSRI aims to establish and promote research communities that will foster and strengthen research productivity and career development among its participants. The ADJOINT workshops are designed to catalyze research collaborations, provide support for conferences to increase the visibility of the researchers, and to develop a sense of community among the mathematical scientists who attend.

This program will enhance the mathematical and statistical sciences and its community by positively affecting the research and careers of African-American mathematical and statistical scientists and supporting their efforts to achieve full access and engagement in the broader research community.

Applications for the 2021 Summer ADJOINT program are now open. The 2021 program takes place June 21 – July 2, 2021 in Berkeley, California.
