This website is for faculty interested in using their theoretical knowledge of mathematics to tackle some of the difficult problems facing society, many of which have yet to be properly defined.

Our research specialties are varied and our ideas of what exactly mathematics and social advocacy means in practical terms may not necessarily be the same. But what unites us is our desire to develop new curriculum and research opportunities for students in the applications of mathematics to modern societal problems.

If you have done scholarly work connected to the theme of this page, please send a link to your work. We will post it on the page Mathematics and Social Advocacy on the Web

By collecting all related work on the web in one place, trends begin to emerge. It is interesting to see the different interpretations of mathematics connected to society.
