2022 AWM Student Chapter Award for Community Outreach
The AWM Student Chapter at University of California at Riverside has been selected as the winner of the 2022 AWM Student Chapter Award for Community Outreach. Each year, the Award for Community Outreach highlights one student chapter for outstanding engagement with the local community. The AWM Student Chapter of the University of California at Riverside receives this award in recognition of the varied, thoughtful, and original community outreach activities. The chapter’s efforts focused on connecting mathematics to the arts, k-12 outreach, and working with other campus entities. Highlights included the virtual conference Women in MathArt: Research, Creativity, and Teaching; a collaboration with the campus poetry club to explore mathematical poetry; participation in the campus Dia de los Muertos celebration by sharing entries for women mathematicians who have passed away; a platonic solids event for middle school girls through a STEM role-models program; and working with the education department to help prepare for a high school Sonia Day. The chapter’s efforts show a strong commitment to building community among the members, at UC Riverside and with the broader community.
