Evanston-area middle schoolers engage in enrichment activities in mathematics. While this program does not target under-represented groups, it is free of charge and has no selection criteria. There is typically a high representation of female students involved.

NESP (Northwestern Emerging Scholars Program)

This initiative aims to bring a wider swath of students into the math major by revealing some of the beauty of mathematics to students in courses that focus on applications or mathematics as a prerequisite for study in other disciplines.

NUAWM (Northwestern University Association of Women in Mathematics)

The group's activities allow undergraduate women to explore all areas of the discipline and the profession of mathematics.


WIM is an active group of women in the Department of Mathematics at Northwestern University organized in October 2004. The members of the group are faculty, instructors, postdocs, graduate and undergraduate students.
