Symbols of Inclusion:

Graduate Math Allies

Mission Statement

The mission of Symbols of Inclusion is twofold. First, we aim to provide a supportive community at UIC for women, historically underrepresented students, and gender and sexual minority students of mathematics. Anyone who is on board with this mission is welcome at our events! 

We will facilitate mentoring networks and community-building opportunities, and provide resources to assist undergraduates transition into higher education or a career related to mathematics. Second, we aim to educate ourselves on how best to advocate for students of color in mathematics, and for other students with marginalized identities in mathematics. We will study resources and perspectives from members of these communities and experts in the field, and aim to bring this understanding to our teaching, research, and community-building work.
