SUMRY

Summer Undergraduate Research at Yale (SUMRY)

The SUMRY program is a ten-­week undergraduate research program run by the mathematics department at Yale University, usually between early June and early August. In a recent year, there were 15-20 funded positions for undergraduates to investigate open research problems in the mathematical sciences. Students work either individually or in small groups, directed by faculty members, post­doctoral fellows, and graduate students. The work pursued in this program will give participants an idea of what research in mathematics is like.

Yale Undergraduate Math Society (YUMS)

The Yale Undergraduate Mathematics Society, or YUMS, aims to create and foster a community for undergraduates at Yale interested in mathematics. It does so by hosting a number of events for math students, including colloquia, study sessions, game nights, and panels about the math major and summer opportunities.

Intersections

Intersections is an association of women and gender minorities in math at Yale. Their objectives are: To create a network and community that celebrates the accomplishments of women and gender minorities in math at Yale; to indicate a presence of women and gender minorities in the math department and be a resource for prospective mathematics students; to provide avenues for support and mentorship of current students and faculty; to connect undergraduates, graduate students, postdocs and faculty members. They work in close collaboration with Dimensions, an undergraduate organization at Yale and a AWM chapter that aims to inspire, celebrate, and empower women and gendered minorities in mathematics.

BATMOBYLE

The BATMOBYLE is a vehicle for bringing together the algebraic and tropical geometry groups of Brown and Yale for a biannual day of talks alternating between the two universities.
