Department Administration and Advising

The Mathematics Department has a Chair (Prof. Maggy Tomova) and two Associate Chairs (Prof. Bruce Ayati, Director of the Graduate Program and Prof. Oguz Durumeric, Director of the Undergraduate Program). The faculty elects its Undergraduate Committee (likewise a Graduate Committee). In 2016-2017, Professors Durumeric (Chair), Darcy, Fang, Seaman, Stewart and Kawamuro serve on the committee. Day to day decisions implementing Department policies are made by the Program Directors or at the Committee level. The Committees make policy recommendations to the Department faculty.

We have an excellent support staff, including certain Secretaries who deal often with students: Margaret Driscol handles money matters and also is the person to see about meeting with the Department Chair. Cindy Van Ark works most closely with the Graduate Program.

Students in all majors usually receive initial advising from AAC, the Academic Advising Center in Pomerantz Center. From the second year on (maybe sooner for some students), each student is assigned an advisor in the Department of Mathematics. Most students are assigned first to the Math Department Advisor or the Director of the Undergraduate Program to provide uniformity; after one or two semesters, other faculty take over. For students in the Teacher Education Program (TEP), there also will be a TEP advisor in the College of Education.
