About our Department:

The Department of Mathematics and Statistics comprises 40 tenured/tenure-track faculty members across four disciplinary groups (pure, applied, statistics, mathematics education) who take pride in teaching at a university that ranks near the top for number of bachelor’s degrees awarded to minorities. We are actively involved with community outreach through our training and placement of future teachers, coaching teams of high-schoolers for mathematics contest ARML, organizing our very own Math Day at the Beach for high-schoolers, and other activities.

Department faculty members work closely, productively, and collegially with departmental colleagues on innovative curriculum development, research, and advising. Faculty teach mathematics, statistics, and math education courses for undergraduate majors, graduate students, and broader audiences. Faculty members provide mentorship to new hires in research, pursuit of grants, teaching, service, and general adjustments to life as a faculty member.
