This is an NSF-supported eight week REU taking place in the summers. Students work in small groups on open ended research projects, under supervision of a faculty member. We also offer a number of panels (e.g. on graduate school) and workshops on LATEX typesetting, BEAMER, etc., as well as lectures on epistemology of math, and propositional logic. There are weekly joint activities with the other REUs and summer programs on campus. We end with an internal conference. The director of the REU is a member of IBP, Math Alliance, and SACNAS. Half of our students are female, and half minority or other protected groups, some come from Community Colleges.
