We are an all-inclusive, friendly department committed to our students and their professional development. Our students work with researchers who are dedicated to applications in medical imaging, cybersecurity, collegiate mathematics education, national and global defense, geosciences, biological processes, and data science, as well as foundational research in algebraic geometry, combinatorics, computational science, mathematical physics, number theory, and topology.
Our department strives to create an environment which embraces diversity, equity, inclusion, and justice as core values. All members of the department, including faculty, staff, graduate students, and undergraduate students, are expected to foster a community in which all feel welcomed, valued, and heard. We consider diversity in the broadest terms possible, including but not limited to gender identity and expression, sexuality, age, race, disability, nationality, religious affiliation or lack thereof, economic status, groups that have been historically marginalized, and intersections thereof. An environment of mutual respect is crucial to the teaching, learning, and research of mathematics, and the work needed to build this environment never stops.
Professor Alexander Hulpke takes on the role as Chair of the Department of Mathematics at CSU, bringing his expertise, focus on education and plan for growth.
After an international search, Jennifer Mueller, professor in the Department of Mathematics at Colorado State University, has been named the third Albert C. Yates Endowed Chair of Mathematics.
Pries, also a Fellow of the American Mathematical Society and a founding member of the Women in Number Theory Network, strives to be a steward of both inclusivity and equity in math and is a student of those who pioneered such work.
Mathematics is about the diverse journeys and pathways to get to a solution. Irv Bahe’s unique story proves that the same holds true for mathematicians.
