About Us

Vision:

To assist Texas A&M’s mathematical community with embracing diversity and increasing awareness.

Mission:

  • To empower, support, and increase the visibility of marginalized communities
  • To educate ourselves and others on topics related to diversity and allyship, with a focus on diversity in the classroom
  • To facilitate inclusive, supportive discussions with, as far as it is possible, representations from underrepresented groups
