Field of Dreams

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 National Math 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.
