Strategies for advancing the mathematics and statistics workforce

Join the Community

The increasingly complex scientific and social problems we are facing demand innovative solutions and require a workforce that is trained to meet these challenges. To best position mathematics and statistics departments and students to meet 21st century needs, the INGenIOuS project partners (American Mathematical Society, American Statistical Association, Mathematical Association of America and Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics) invite thought-leaders in the mathematical sciences community to develop strategies for future investments in training at the graduate and undergraduate levels.

Workshop Report

The Workshop was held in July 2013 and generated a great deal of enthusiasm among participants. Here is the report: INGenIOuS Report
