Supporting the Department

The Department of Mathematics benefits from the support of alumni and friends in many different ways. Many contribute their time, energy and accumulated wisdom by advising prospective students about what being a student at the University of Chicago is like, and advising current students about what life away from the University of Chicago is like. Others contribute to the health of the department through their contributions to mathematical research and education, or to development of applications of mathematics; these enrich the mathematical community in general, and the Department in particular. And of course, other friends contribute financially, helping to make much of what we do possible. Among the things supported partially or fully by gifts to the Department are:
