The goal of the Pacific Math Alliance is to build a regional community of mentors that will help
under-represented minority students to pursue advanced study or a
career in the mathematical sciences.
As part of the National Math Alliance
and, consistent with its goals, we aim to increase the number of
under-represented minority students from our region who enter Ph.D.
programs in the Mathematical Sciences, as well as to improve the
quality of mathematical education provided to them prior to the Ph.D.
program. We also focus on the critical transitions from high school
to college and from community college to a four-year college, in
addition to emphasizing the wide variety of career options that are
available to Math majors.
The Pacific Math Alliance began
through the collaboration of a small number of dedicated faculty
members with experience in mentoring students from under-represented
groups in Southern California. We invite you to visit our site to
learn about the programs that are already in place. We hope you will
join or develop a relationship with us.
