Association for Women in Mathematics (AWM)

We are the CCNY student chapter of the Association for Women in Mathematics (AWM). We want to help foster a sense of community among math enthusiasts at CCNY. We organize various events with the Math Club including group meetings, invited speakers, and community outreach. Our goal is to have students and faculty interact outside of the classroom and to form a support system for each other.

Club room

The current location of AWM (and also math club) is Marshak 308A.

How to join:

All CCNY students are welcome to join. All members receive complimentary membership in the AWM. Events and resources are announced in several locations.

We're always excited to get ideas and help with events! If you're interested in getting more involved with planning, email us at awmccny@gmail.com or talk to one of our board members.


2022-2023 Executive Committee:

  • Presidents: Gabriela Brown (gbrown007) and Valentina Tillman (vtillma000)

  • Vice-President: Veronica Koval (vkoval000)

  • Secretary: Tabitha Ramirez

  • Quasi-Co-Vice President: Elliot Kimbrough-Perry

  • Treasurer: Rhaldni Sayaman

We're a student-run organization, so our board is always changing as people graduate. If you're interested in being a board member, we'd love to have you! Email us at awmccny@gmail.com or talk to a current board member if you're interested.

Upcoming Events

  • AWM Talk TBD by Sevan Bharathan (Thursday May 11th 2023, 12:30-1:30, Marshak 308A)


  • AWM Talk TBD by William Taylor (Thursday May 4th 2023, 12:30-1:30, Marshak 308A)


  • AWM Talk TBD by Elliot Kimbrough-Perry (Thursday April 27th 2023, 12:30-1:30, Marshak 308A)


  • AWM Talk TBD by Gabriela Brown (Thursday April 20th 2023, 12:30-1:30, Marshak 308A)


  • AWM Talk: Martingales and Abracadabra, by Julio Diaz (Thursday Mar 30th 2023, 12:30-1:30, Marshak 308A)

    Martingales are the mathematical abstraction of a fair game that have numerous applications in probability theory. The name originates from a class of betting strategies from 18th century France. In this talk, we will introduce martingales and Doob’s optional stopping theorem, and then use these tools to calculate the expected time for a monkey to type the word ABRACADABRA. If time permits we will also use martingales to prove Cayley’s formula for the number of spanning trees of a complete graph.

Past Events

  • Pi Day Party (Tuesday Mar 14th 2023, 12-2, Marshak 308A)

    Friends! It's once again that time of year when we gather to celebrate pi. (And also our favorite pies: apple pie, pizza pie, pie charts). There will be food, drinks, music, and games (including another round of our integral competition). Be there or be square!

  • AWM Talk: What are Thompson's Groups? by Adrian Cabreja (Thursday March 8th 2023, 12:30-1:30, Marshak 308A)

    Thompson’s group F was first defined in 1965 by Richard Thompson. It has since been studied in the context of algebraic topology, category theory, computer science, shape theory and other mathematical fields. The group itself is very interesting since it has properties that appear to be paradoxical. For example 1. F contains the direct sum of infinitely many copies of itself, yet it is finitely presented. 2. F has exponential growth but contains no free groups of rank 2. The purpose of this talk is to define Thompson’s group F in both its analytic and geometric interpretation, while also presenting some of its interesting properties.

  • Resume Workshop (Thursday Feb 9th 2023, 12:30-1:30, Marshak 308A)

    Are you applying for jobs, internships, or grad school? This Thursday from 12:30-1:30 we're running a resume workshop! If you've never made one before, we'll have templates for whatever kind of resume/CV you need. And if you do have a resume, bring it in and we'll give you feedback on how to highlight your skills and experience. This event will also be a Zoom event, so join us in person in MR 308A, or on video for members on our mailing list.

  • ENYGMMa seminar supporting gender minorities in mathematics (Friday Feb 10th 2023, 12:30-4:15, at the CUNY Graduate Center)

    This seminar is joint-organized by several NY universities, and will have a catered lunch, talk by Prof. Moira Chas (Stonybrook), and a panel on careers in Math. The event is happening at the CUNY Graduate Center on Friday, February 10 2023 from 12:30-4:15. RSVP here!

  • Welcome back coffee and tea! (Thursday Jan 26th, 12:30-1:30, Club Room)

    Welcome back everyone! We'll be having coffee/tea and donuts during club hours this week to kick off the beginning of the semester. Say hi to the friends you haven't seen all break, and welcome new classmates! See you Thursday 12:30-1:30 in Marshak 308A.


NYC Regional Math Alliance RAMMP Summer Program

The program is open to all undergraduate students in the NYC area who will have completed mathematics courses requiring the writing of rigorous proofs. Students will receive a stipend for the eight weeks of the program, June 1 - July 23, which will take place at City College of New York. During the course of the program, groups of 3-4 students will work closely with their faculty mentor on research projects.

More details are provided on the NYC Math Alliance website.

Please send any questions on the program to nycmathalliance@gmail.com.

San Diego State REU

San Diego State University is pleased to invite applications to its Summer 2020 Mathematics Research Experience for Undergraduates. The program dates this year will be June 14 to August 7, subject to final NSF approval. The projects will be in number theory.

The program will pay a stipend of $4000, provide housing, and some support for food for participants and the application deadline is March 1, 2020. For a detailed program description and application instructions/materials, please see the program website here.

Math GRE Subject Test

If you are interested in taking the Math GRE subject test and want to join a study group, AWM and Math Club are organizing review sessions. The test is offered three times a year. If you want to take the test in New York City, register early - spots fill up very quickly.
