MathWiSE is the Math/Applied Math Department's affinity group of Brown's university-wide Women in Science and Engineering (WiSE) group. It was founded as both a community and a resource to encourage female undergraduates to pursue studies, and ultimately careers, in the mathematical sciences.

In the past, we have sponsored events such as grad school info sessions, course advice Q&A sessions, and talks by professors, as well as social events like celebrations of Pi Day and Euler's birthday. We frequently collaborate with the MathDUG, WiSE, and other academic student groups. We welcome input from the Brown community regarding event ideas. In addition, we also engage our community with events like our semesterly Girl Scouts Math Workshop. Our events are open to all genders, concentrations, and class years (including graduate students and professors) and are sponsored by the Department of Mathematics.

To stay up to date with our events and to receive notifications on internship, grad school, and employment opportunities, please join our LISTSERV by clicking here or by contacting the webmaster. If you would like to suggest an event or if your student group would like to host a joint event with us, please email us!

Four new coordinators will be taking over MathWiSE starting in the fall: Cindy Abarca, Rebecca Rieke, Lauren Galvan, and Laura Kulowski.


We are proud to announce that MathWiSE has been approved by UCS as an official Brown University Category I student group! Our official status will go into effect next semester.
