EDGE: A Program for Women in Mathematics

EDGE quilt
The EDGE Program is administered by Morehouse and Pomona Colleges with the goal of strengthening the ability of women students to successfully complete PhD programs in the mathematical sciences and place more women in visible leadership roles in the mathematics community. Along with the summer session, EDGE supports an annual conference, travel for research collaborations, travel to present research and other open-ended mentoring activities.

2017 Summer Session

The 2017 EDGE summer session will be held June 5 ā€“ July 1, 2017 at Mills College in Oakland, California. The local coordinator is Maia Averett.

Unwavering Commitment to Diversity

EDGE seeks to create, identify and disseminate programs and strategies that improve the persistence of women and minority graduate students, and contribute to the development of a diverse mathematical community.

Former Summer Session Host Institutions

The first EDGE summer session was at Bryn Mawr College in 1998 and the location alternated between Bryn Mawr and Spelman Colleges until 2003 when it moved to Pomona College. Since then Florida A&M University, Harvey Mudd College, New College of Florida, North Carolina A&T State University, North Carolina State University, and Purdue University have hosted the summer session.
