Next Mathematics Colloquium

On Tuesday, May 12, Dr. Martha Siegel, Professor of Mathematics at Towson University, presented a colloquium lecture on From Ebbets Field to Towson: Reflections on my career.

Abstract:  From my formative days in Brooklyn, NY to more recent experiences in the leadership of the MAA, at Towson University, and in the University System of Maryland, mathematics and college teaching have been far more than work. I will talk about what led me to the path I took, what has been most gratifying along the way, and what continues to make this career so satisfying that I am not about to bow out … yet.

This colloquium was held in 7800 York Road, Room 320 at 4:00 p.m., with light refreshments served before the talk, at 3:30 p.m.
