Alumna Gift and Mathematics Bootcamp

Alumna Virginia Menz Clark '62 recently established an endowed fund for the Mathematics Department, with the income designated to promote mathematics at Wellesley College, especially in meeting needs that are particular to mathematics. It helps support student travel to mathematics conferences, faculty research, and innovative teaching. In the summer of 2007 the Clark Fund helped support our "math bootcamp": a four-week intensive program in pure mathematics, organized by Professors Chang and Volic and designed to provide strong preparation for graduate school in mathematics. Four Wellesley students/alumnae participated in the 2007 program.

Three of our students, Caitlin Leverson '10, Sue He '10 and Beth Romano '08 will be attending graduate studies in the fall. A bootcamp is scheduled for Summer 2010.
