The department’s animating mission continues to be the
production and dissemination of significant mathematics research
having a recognized impact on the development of both fundamental
and applied mathematics.
Additional priorities include:
- Fostering interactions with other units in the university, both
in research collaborations and educational programs;
- The development and delivery of high-quality programs for
students at both the undergraduate and graduate levels, programs
that prepare them for a variety of mathematically grounded
- The development and delivery of content rich, appropriately
targeted lower-division courses to provide a solid mathematical
underpinning for the work of students in other disciplines,
principally engineering, management and the sciences.
