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.
