Diversity and inclusion

We commit to listen, learn, and evolve so that we can identify and change the systems and structures that contribute to this lack of inclusiveness. Our goal is to create a climate in which people from any background feel invited and welcome to join in creating and promoting knowledge and the appreciation of mathematics.

Community engagement and outreach

Many members of our department are enthusiastic about engaging in mathematics outside of Oregon State with the broader community. We work with the community to develop positive attitudes towards mathematics with engaging mathematical activities.
