Center for Interdisciplinary Research

Under our original grant, the Center for Interdisciplinary Research (CIR) brought together undergraduate statistics students supervised by statistics faculty with faculty and students from other disciplines to share in the excitement and challenge of working across the traditional academic boundaries to collaborate on research. Under our current grant, the CIR will be expanded to include applied and computational mathematics and an increased number of students from underrepresented groups, while still maintaining the original grant’s goals of attracting more students to graduate study and careers in the mathematical sciences, especially through successful interdisciplinary, collaborative research experiences as undergraduates.
