COVID-19 Mitigation Plan


  • Christine Kelley joins the Mathematical Association of America (MAA) as the new MAA Project NExT (New Experiences in Teaching) Director. 
  • Jim Lewis received a Friend of Science Award from the Nebraska Academy of Sciences.
  • Faculty member Eloísa Grifo has received a grant from the National Science Foundation to advance her work in commutative algebra. Grifo, assistant professor of mathematics, is the first woman from the Nebraska U mathematics department — and the second Husker mathematician overall — to receive funding from NSF’s Faculty Early Career Development Program. With the five-year, $425,000 CAREER grant, Grifo will expand on her work in commutative algebra, particularly as it relates to applications of p-derivations, symbolic powers and cohomological support varieties.
  • STEM CONNECT, an NSF scholarship program to assist more low-income students into STEM careers, was featured as a student success story by Inside Higher Ed, the national higher education online news source. The grant benefits students attending UNL, Southeast Community College and Western Nebraska Community College by providing scholarships, community support, education and mentorship.
  • Layla Montemayor was selected for the SIAM-Simons undergraduate summer research program!
  • Meet Dakota Andrews, a mathematics major who loves the problem solving journey of mathematics and plans to attend graduate school!
  • Meet Erica Steiner, a mathematics and biological sciences major who plans to become a doctor!
  • Meet Nate Nordby, psychology major and mathematics minor!
  • Students and community find value in "Math in the City": MATH 435 students collaborated with the Lancaster County Assessor's Office to study the local housing market using methods from mathematical statistics, machine learning, and economics.
  • The 33rd Nebraska Math Day was on Thursday, Nov. 17, 2022, hosted by the Department of Mathematics. Nebraska high schools joined us for a day of engaging mathematics. Math Day consists of one individual and two team mathematics competitions. All students participate in a multiple-choice, preliminary exam called PROBE I (Problems Requiring Original and Brilliant Effort). The top 50 students then move on to take the now famous essay exam called PROBE II. The PROBE top 25 Nebraska high school students (sum of PROBE I and II) are awarded a total of $41,500 in one- or four-year scholarships to UNL.
  • KUMUNU, an annual conference for commutative algebraists in the Great Plains region named for its original participating institutions (the University of Kansas, the University of Missouri–Columbia, and the University of Nebraska–Lincoln) was held Oct. 8-9, 2022.
  • Grace Farson named one of NSRI's strategic deterrence interns for 2022
  • Class of 2022 Student Spotlight: Concussions ice Cathcart’s hockey dreams, factor into his degree path in mathematics
  • The College of Arts and Sciences annually recognizes the outstanding achievements of its faculty and staff. Check out the awards received in our department.
