2023 COE Mini-conference: Enhancing graduate programs in the mathematical sciences for student success
September 28, 2023
9:00 AM - 5:00 PM EST
Hosted virtually by the American Mathematical Society

The 2023 Education Mini-conference brings together academics, researchers, administrators, and professionals from the mathematical sciences to explore innovative strategies and best practices for enhancing graduate education programs. In today's rapidly evolving world, it is crucial to equip graduate students in the mathematical sciences with the necessary tools, skills, and support to thrive and contribute meaningfully to the broad scientific community. This gathering will explore (re)designing graduate programs to prepare students for non-academic careers, to take advantage of federal resources and support, and to recruit and retain students from 4-year colleges and universities. We aim to foster discussions, exchange ideas, and collaborate on ways to enhance graduate programs, ultimately promoting student success and prosperity in the 21st century.
This conference is open to mathematicians, statisticians, applied mathematicians, graduate and undergraduate program administrators, faculty members, researchers, and those with careers in Business, Entrepreneurship, Government, Industry, and Nonprofit (BEGIN). Together, let's empower the next generation of mathematical scientists with advanced degrees to thrive and make significant contributions in the dynamic landscape of the 21st century.

The Mini-conference is a full day virtual conference with a keynote address and three panel discussions.  Registration is $25 for AMS members, $50 for nonmembers, and $25 for students. Check the mini-conference page later in the summer for more details about the schedule of events.

Registrants may opt to participate only in the final panel in the Mini-Conference,  Demystifying the Grad School Process: A Town Hall with Research I Universities and 4-Year Colleges from 3:00 to 5:00 p.m.. Registration for the Town Hall only is free.
