The Department has 71 full-time faculty members and 22 postdoctoral faculty and is housed largely in Altgeld Hall, a beautiful stone Romanesque building in the heart of campus with one of the world's best mathematics libraries. The 160 doctoral students enjoy a collaborative atmosphere and a lively schedule of about twenty-five research seminars and lectures each week. Sixty of our PhD students are women, and we support an active chapter of the Association for Women in Mathematics (AWM). We help Masters and PhD students explore multiple career paths through an innovative program of internships in science and industry.
