The University at Buffalo Department of Mathematics is pleased to announce the creation of a fund to support our Association for Women in Mathematics chapter, and more generally to provide opportunities for women in our department. A generous donation from Gerald Sufrin, M.D., and his wife Janice Sufrin, PhD, established the fund.
Dr. Sufrin, Professor and Chair, Jacobs School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences, Department of Urology, states, “We are grateful for the opportunity to support, encourage and hopefully advance the opportunities for women in mathematics at the University at Buffalo.”
Dr. David Hemmer, Professor and Chair, UB Department of Mathematics, said the donation was perfectly timed, “Our AWM chapter was founded last year and has been dramatically expanding its activities. The Sufrin’s generous donation will support visiting speakers and mentoring activities. In a time of limited state resources, philanthropy is essential to our department’s success.”
Anyone wishing to contribute to the fund can contact Dr. Hemmer at firstname.lastname@example.org or donate online, Association for Women in Mathematics Fund.
