## Math Alliance & UCR

#### UCR's mission is to provide educational success for underrepresented and first-generation college students.

##### To further this mission UCR's Math Department is a Math Alliance Graduate Program Group. Dr. Fred Wilhelm is a Math Alliance Mentor and UCR's Math Alliance Coordinator.

**The National Alliance for Doctoral Studies in the Mathematical Sciences (Math Alliance) is a community of math sciences faculty and students with the following goals:**

**1. To increase the number of doctoral degrees in the mathematical sciences among groups that have been traditionally underrepresented in those fields.
2. To improve placement of students from these groups in doctoral programs in disciplines that recruit undergraduate mathematics majors.
3. To increase the number of Ph.D.s from these groups who enter the professoriate in the mathematical sciences as well as other appropriate professions.
4. To increase funded research collaborations among faculty members at the universities with mathematical sciences doctoral programs and faculty members at colleges and universities focused on undergraduate students.
5. To foster the growth of a community of mathematical scientists that promotes a diverse workforce.**
