Finding and Keeping Graduate Students
July 9 to July 12, 2011
in the Mathematical Sciences, III
American Institute of Mathematics,
Palo Alto, California
This workshop is sponsored by AIM, the National Alliance for Doctoral Studies in the
Mathematical Sciences, and the NSF. The workshop will provide an opportunity for
graduate programs in the mathematical sciences to learn about successful initiatives to
broaden participation in graduate study in the mathematical sciences as well as to draw
up concrete plans to adapt and implement such initiatives in their home departments.
These plans will improve outcomes for graduate students in terms of recruitment,
retention, graduation, career development, and placement, with a focus on broadening
access and enhancing success for U.S. students, particularly women and members of
underrepresented groups. In addition, participation in this workshop will be an
important criterion for those departments that wish to form Alliance Graduate Program
The workshop will involve about 24 participants and 8 presenters and facilitators.
Participants will apply in teams from the same educational institution. Each team will
preferably have at least three members and must include at least two representatives
from a mathematical sciences department and at least one departmental or campus-level
The deadline to apply for this workshop has passed.
