Association for Women in Mathematics (AWM) undergraduate student chapter

Who we are

Women in Mathematics at Nebraska (WUMN) was founded in 2008 by UNL female undergraduates interested in developing a social network to discuss different mathematical and non-mathematical issues that women might encounter during and after college.

In 2018 WUMN has re-defined itself as a chapter of the Association for Women in Mathematics (AWM).

Currently the AWM student chapter holds joint meetings with the Math Club and Pi Mu Epsilon. Take a look at the upcoming Math Club events.
