The Math Alliance is glad to be partnering with Ohio State’s Hidden Figures Revealed project. The Math Alliance is a national mentoring community of faculty (Mentors) and students (Scholars). Our goal is simple: we want to be sure that every underrepresented or underserved American student with the talent and the ambition has the opportunity to earn a doctoral degree in a quantitative science.

Our commitment is to build a national community of students, faculty, and staff who will work together to transform our departments, colleges, and universities into institutions where all students are welcome. Our mentors come from a variety of schools all over the country. What they all have in common is a commitment to our Math Alliance Scholars.

Our role is to provide some context from our experience for the project, and to assist in disseminating the outcomes and material from this project to the Math Alliance Community.  We hope this will inspire other institutions to examine their own histories and to undertake self-assessments which can improve the culture and climate of mathematical science departments.

Growing out of an effort by the University of Iowa Department of Mathematics to address the lack of minority representation in the mathematical sciences, the Math Alliance has grown to almost 1,300 mentors at about 400 colleges and universities (as of January 31, 2022).
