An Overview

Our Mathematics and Statistics faculty and students put countless hours into developing and hosting well-attended and highly-rated conferences that draw K-12 students, teachers, undergraduates, and faculty from throughout the Commonwealth and beyond. Mathematics and Statistics faculty are the coordinators and hosts of ExpandingYour Horizon's (EYH) STEM workshop for girls; an outreach event you will see listed on the other four community pages. EYH is a model STEM outreach program because it is a collaborative effort across the colleges allowing a wide array of STEM disciplines to be represented and it provides rich engagement opportunities for over 100 JMU students each year.

Other Examples

~Shenandoah Undergraduate Mathematics and Statistics (SUMS) conference. This is an annual undergraduate research conference featuring talks and posters by undergraduate researchers and invited addresses by noted mathematicians and/or statisticians. In 2019, 272 people from 38 different institutions attended the conference. 

~Developing and teaching hands-on, mathematics and statistics lessons for over 10 different schools each year at STEM days, Family STEM nights, and Family Math Nights. 


~Developing and hosting entertaining programs for the general community that promote the importance of quantitative literacy in our every-day-lives in and in understanding and addressing broader societal issues.
