Professor Tara Holm talks about her service on the Council of the AMS
Professor Tara Holm talks about her service on the Council of the AMS for the past four years. She states that as part of her service, she chaired the Committee on Education (CoE) for the last three years.
The CoE has three main activities. They organize a workshop in Washington, DC each October where mathematics department leaders join the CoE to hear about innovations and studies taking place around the world and to discuss how the AMS can best support its members in these endeavors. They run a panel at the Joint Mathematics Meetings. At the 2015 JMM, their panel asked, “What is a Mathematics PhD?” Finally, they confer the Award for Impact on the Teaching and Learning of Mathematics, generously endowed by Ken Gross (University of Vermont), former member of the CoE.
