Welcome to The Pacific Math Alliance. Our goal is to build a regional community
of mentors that will help underrepresented minority students to pursue
advanced study or a career in the mathematical sciences.
As part of the NationalMath Alliance and, consistent with its goals, we aim to
increase the number of underrepresented 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
underrepresented 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.
