About us

The Cornell Student Chapter was established in 2011 and is supported by Cornell's Department of Mathematics. Our chapter was a recipient of a 2017 Cook Award for our "commitment to women's issues and improving the campus climate for women at Cornell."

The goal of the Cornell Student Chapter of the Association for Women in Mathematics is three-fold:


Please note: people of any gender are welcome! The title of our group is the Association FOR Women in Mathematics -- and NOT the Association OF Women in Mathematics. As such, any member of the Cornell community who is "for" women in mathematics will be welcome at all chapter events.
