New Paltz Student Chapter of the AWM (Association for Women in Mathematics)
SUNY New Paltz has a newly created Student Chapter of the AWM (Association for Women in Mathematics). Shaina Pancaldo (mathematics) is the chapter president. The Student Chapter of the AWM serves as a mechanism for all students, regardless of major or gender, to be exposed to the world of professional mathematics, to obtain information about the varied career options in mathematics, to network with professional mathematicians, and to develop leadership skills.
A general interest meeting will be held on Wednesday, September 19 at 4:00 pm in LC 109.
Immediately following the general interest meeting will be the first lecture in the 2012-2013 SIAM/AWM Lecture Series. Dr. Amir Barghi (SUNY New Paltz, Mathematics) will give a talk entitled ``What is a One-Dimensional Random Walk?''.
All students are welcomed and encouraged to attend. Refreshments will be provided.
