The Howard Rowlee Lecture is an annual event which seeks to bring internationally acclaimed scholars in the mathematical sciences to UNL to promote public understanding of mathematical research and to stimulate the environment for mathematics research at UNL.
This conference gives outstanding undergraduate women the opportunity to discuss their own research and to meet other women who share their interest in the mathematical sciences. Conference participants will also have a chance to learn about life in graduate school from the perspective of current women graduate students representing math departments from across the country.
KUMUNU, which is named for its original participating institutions (the University of Kansas, the University of Missouri–Columbia, and the University of Nebraska–Lincoln), has been an annual conference for commutative algebraists in the Great Plains region since 1999. It has grown significantly since its inception, and currently attracts about 100 participants from a significantly larger geographical region. The goal of KUMUNU is to provide a setting to share cutting-edge mathematical research and promote collaborations among algebraists in or within driving distance of the Great Plains region. Major goals specific to KUMUNU are to broaden the geographic reach of the conference, promote connection between commutative algebra and related areas, and showcase the research of early career mathematicians. The 2020 conference will be held at UNL Oct. 3-4.
Since 2000, the Department has hosted an annual Recognition Banquet each spring, to celebrate the achievements of the past year of Departmental staff, faculty, undergraduates and graduate students.
Pi Mu Epsilon (PME) is a national honor society promoting scholarship in mathematical sciences. The Nebraska Alpha Chapter of PME was founded at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln in 1928 and has since then inducted over 2000 members. The PME Address is an annual lecture series, each year bringing a prominent mathematician and educator to give a public talk at UNL for the primary benefit of our undergraduate science majors.
The Career Perspectives in Mathematics lecture series aims to inform and inspire students regarding the many professions that a bachelor's degree in mathematics can lead up to. Featuring successful alumni of our department, the presentations in this series shed light on the transformation process from student to professional, illustrated with personal examples and tips from the trenches.
The Central States Mathematics Undergraduate Research conferences is a celebration of research in mathematics performed by undergraduate students. The fourth installment of this conference series was held at UNL on April 20-21, 2018.
