- Statement of support for the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics from presidents of 15 mathematical societies (including AWM).
- The AWM Teacher Partnership connects teachers of mathematics and mathematicians.
- Many mathematicians are involved with math circles for students or for teachers. The National Association of Math Circles lists locations of math circles for students. The Math Teachers’ Circle Network lists locations of math circles for teachers.
- The Women and Mathematics Network is a consortium of program directors of outreach programs for girls.
- Pi Mu Epsilon is dedicated to the promotion of mathematics and recognition of students who successfully pursue mathematical understanding. To promote mathematics, the National Pi Mu Epsilon Council sponsors an annual conference in conjunction with the Mathematics Association of America’s annual MathFest. Traditionally, this conference occurs the first weekend of August. Undergraduate members of Pi Mu Epsilon are encouraged to give a 15 minute presentation on a mathematical topic of interest. Local chapters are listed here.
- Kappa Mu Epsilon, mathematics honor society for undergraduates at four-year colleges and universities holds national and regional conferences. See Yanik, E. (2012). Another mathematics honor society: Kappa Mu Epsilon. AWM Newsletter, 42(2), 21–22.
- Mu Alpha Theta, national honor society for high school and two-year college students, holds national and regional conferences. See Lenhart, S. (2011). FUN with Mu Alpha Theta. AWM Newsletter, 41(2), 31.
- Many types of statistics are available from the National Science Foundation, for example, how many women earn baccalaureates in mathematics each year. These and other information are published biennially in two reports: Science and Engineering Indicators and Women, Minorities and Persons with Disabilities in Science and Engineering, both of which are available from the National Science Foundation’s statistics website.
- AMS survey of mathematics and statistics departments is conducted annually. This includes faculty salaries and demographics, PhDs granted, and graduate enrollment.
- CBMS survey of mathematics and statistics departments is conducted every five years. This includes faculty demographics, undergraduate course enrollments, and number of mathematics and statistics baccalaureates granted.
- Talking about Leaving: Why Undergraduates Leave the Sciences was a study of seven colleges and universities published in 1997. A replication of this study is in progress.
