Student Memberships

math faculty and students gathered in a loungeThe Department of Mathematics has institutional memberships or local chapters of several national organizations. As part of their affiliation with our department, both undergraduate and graduate students are eligible to have their memberships in these organizations paid for by the department. Consider getting involved by claiming yours today!

American Mathematical Society

The American Mathematical Society (AMS) is a national organization centered around promoting research in the mathematical sciences. All graduate students are automatically nominated as members by the department and a local chapter of AMS has recently been founded.

Association for Women in Mathematics

The Association for Women in Mathematics (AWM) is a national organization whose membership is committed to supporting female-identifying individuals in the mathematical sciences.

The local chapter of AWM hosts a variety of events each semester that are open to all students. To receive your membership to the national organization you will need to join the UA AWM chapter: sign up sheets are available at each event. Once that paperwork is processed, you will be sent a link to officially join the national organization while having your membership dues paid by the department.

Check the department calendar for upcoming AWM events.

Mathematical Association of America

The Mathematical Association of America (MAA) is a national organization focused on creating a community of learners in mathematics. Undergraduate and graduate students are nominated as members by the department. If you have not been nominated but would like to be, please contact the mathematics department.

National Association of Mathematicians

The National Association of Mathematicians (NAM) is a group devoted to promoting the mathematical development of all underrepresented minorities. Students interested in joining should contact the mathematics office to express interest in joining through the department.

Pi Mu Epsilon

The purpose of Pi Mu Epsilon (PME) is to promote scholarship and interest in mathematics. Invitation to membership in our local chapter is based on quantitative and qualitative achievement in mathematics and on general scholarship. Currently, consideration for membership in PME requires a 3.9 GPA (for seniors) or a 3.7 GPA (for juniors) both overall and specifically for mathematics classes. In addition, students must have completed the calculus sequence and at least one additional 200-level mathematics course.

Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics

The Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics (SIAM) is an international research-focused organization of individuals concerned with the ways in which mathematics is applied to other disciplines.
