LSU AWM STUDENT CHAPTER


Welcome to the LSU AWM Student Chapter!

    This is the website of the Louisiana State University Student Chapter of the Association for Women in Mathematics.  The Chapter was formed at the end of Fall 2008 and was approved by the AWM on December 22, 2008.  

    Here are the Bylaws of our Student Chapter: This is the document we sent to the AWM to form our Chapter.

   The Student Chapters of the Association for Women in Mathematics (AWM) serve as a mechanism for all students, regardless of major or gender, to be exposed to the world of professional mathematics, to obtain information about the varied career options in mathematics, to network with professional mathematicians, and to develop leadership skills.

    We will have meetings and events during the semester and we will keep posting these activities on this site under Recent Posts.  Please click on the links above to find out about our members, how to become a member, view photos, and more.

"To encourage women and girls to study and to have active careers in the mathematical 
sciences, and to promote equal opportunity and the equal treatment 
of women and girls in the mathematical sciences."

The LSU VIGRE Program will provide the funds for the first Sonia Kovalevsky High School Mathematics Day at LSU to be held May 8th, 2010!

Posted by Silvia on February 22,  2010

     Silvia Jimenez, Zuhal Yeter, and Anna Zemlyanova, with Prof. Brenner's help, wrote a proposal during the summer 2009 to organize a SK Day at LSU.  On October 8th, 2009 we received a letter from AWM with the news that the proposal was approved and we were awarded $1500 for support of the SK Day.  But on November 20th, 2009 we received an email notifying us that the AWM had to rescind the award.  Luckily, the LSU VIGRE Program decided to help us by funding the activity.  We will need the collaboration of all the members to make this activity a success!

Congratulations to the new officers of the AWM Student Chapter!.
