In Defense of Dr. Piper Harron and Academic Free Speech

The AWM believes in the right of individuals to speak their minds, and to take active roles in developing a more inclusive mathematical community.

We stand firmly behind Dr. Piper Harron against any who would try to bully her, undermine her professional success, or silence her voice.

Dr. Harron’s recent post on the AMS inclusion-exclusion blog has come under attack by alt-right media with a long history of disrupting the careers of academics at vulnerable points in their careers. By supporting Dr. Harron’s right to free speech, the AWM reaffirms its commitment to diversity and open dialogue within our community, and asks other mathematics organizations to join us.

  • AWM Student Chapter Formation
    Calling all undergrads and faculty advisors! Does your department have (or want!) a Math Club or student chapter of the AWM, MAA, PME, or SIAM?   Then join us for the "Math Potluck: A Student Swap Session" to be held on Saturday, July 29 at MathFest in Chicago!

    Description: This session will provide a forum for sharing your favorite or most successful student activity. The presenter(s) will provide a "how-to" for a single math event that a math club or student chapter has held. Together, we will build a toolbox of successful activities to take back to each of our campuses! Following the morning presentations, a free lunch will be held for all presenters and attendees of this session to promote continued discussion and collaboration amongst participants. Please indicate in your abstract submission whether your group is a Math Club or student chapter of AWM, MAA, PME, or SIAM.  This session is jointly sponsored by the AWM, MAA, PME, and SIAM
