Diversity and NSF Grantees Poster Session
We indicate the systematic changes made since 2005 to broaden the participation of underrepresented minority students in the undergraduate and graduate programs in the Mathematics Department at the University of Texas at Arlington. We describe how three federally funded mentoring and scholarship programs have helped to achieve these changes, by mentioning the efforts made, challenges encountered, lessons learned, and strategies developed. Prior to 2005, the numbers and percentages of underrepresented minority students in the mathematics programs at the University of Texas at Arlington were insignificant. The current numbers and percentages are drastically different. Various tables and plots are presented to describe the percentages in the student enrollment for women and underrepresented minorities, both at the undergraduate and graduate levels, and both in the Mathematics Department and in the entire university.
