All Girls All Math (AGAM)

The Summer Mathematics Camp for High School Girls provides a stimulating and supportive environment for girls to develop their mathematical ability and interest. The ALL GIRLS/ALL MATH summer camp has been offered since 1997.

Math Day

The purpose of Math Day is to stimulate interest in Mathematics among Nebraska high school students; to encourage them to pursue mathematics or mathematics-based science as a career, to recognize mathematical ability by awarding scholarships, certificates, and trophies.

Nebraska Conference for Undergraduate Women in Mathematics (NCUWM)

This three-day conference held each January is open to outstanding undergraduate women mathematicians at all stages of their careers. Students have the opportunity to meet other women who share their interest in the mathematical sciences, and those who have done research are given an opportunity to present their result.

Past Programs

IMMERSE: Intensive Mathematics: a Mentoring, Education and Research Summer Experience (2005-2015)

Nebraska IMMERSE simultaneously provided a "bridge" program for the summer between undergraduate school and graduate school, an enrichment experience for current UNL graduate students, and an opportunity for faculty in the early years of a professional academic position to receive significant mentoring with regard to both research and teaching — a sort of miniature postdoc position.

MCTP: Mentoring through Critical Transition Points (2004-2015)

This program targeted two critical transition periods in the preparation of mathematicians: the transition from the undergraduate to the graduate leve, and the transition from the advanced graduate level to the early years of an academic position.

REU: Research Experience for Undergraduates (2002-2015)

This Nebraska REU in Applied Mathematics was an eight-week summer research opportunity for 10 students offered by The Department of Mathematics at the University of Nebraska–Lincoln under a grant from the National Science Foundation.

RUTE: Research for Undergraduates in Theoretical Ecology (2005-2011)

Critical questions in contemporary biology increasingly require mathematical analyses for their answers; however, there is a shortage of biologists with sufficient training in mathematics and mathematicians with sufficient training in biology to master this interdisciplinary work. RUTE was the part of the effort that was aimed for upper division undergraduates. The RUTE program had several interrelated components.
