Next Mathematics Colloquium

On Friday, October 31, 2014, Dr. Philip Uri Treisman, Professor of Mathematics and of Public Affairs at the University of Texas at Austin and executive director of the Charles A. Dana Center, will present a special colloquium on The Changing Landscape of Undergraduate Mathematics Education.

Uri Treisman is the founder and executive director of the Charles A. Dana Center, an organized research unit of the College of Natural Sciences at UT-Austin. His research and professional interests span mathematics and science education, education policy, social and developmental psychology, and community service and volunteerism. He received an interdisciplinary Ph.D. from the University of California at Berkeley, where he studied both mathematics and education. For his research at the UC-Berkeley on the factors that support high achievement among minority students in mathematics, Dr. Treisman received the 1987 Charles A. Dana Award for Pioneering Achievement in American Higher Education. In 1992, he was named a MacArthur Fellow. The Harvard Foundation of Harvard University named him “2006 Scientist of the Year” for his outstanding contributions to mathematics.

This colloquium will be held in 7800 York Road, Room 205 at 4:00 p.m., with light refreshments served at 3:30 p.m. in Room 320.
