Get involved in student clubs and activities
If you want to take advantage of the full Sun Devil experience, we encourage you to get involved. ASU has a very active extracurricular involvement program with various opportunities through clubs, community service, leadership, student government and more. Plus, in the School of Mathematical and Statistical Sciences, you can join a club or research initiative to meet students with similar interests as you.
MORE is the Mathematical Organization for Rehumanizing Education. MORE is an ASU club devoted to discussing articles primarily related to the racist structures in mathematics education and research, with a goal of constructing concrete practices to promote anti-racism in the SOMSS. Join MORE via Sun Devil Sync.
The ASU Graduate Statistics Club is a student chapter of the American Statistical Association. The aim of the Graduate Statistics Club is to service graduate students by continuing statistics education, promoting professional development, and hosting networking opportunities. The Graduate Statistics Club hosts high school outreach events to promote the field of statistics and the undergraduate statistics program at ASU and hosts a graduate statistics student panel event for undergraduates to promote the field of statistics and the graduate statistics program at ASU. The Graduate Statistics Club hosts seminar series given by statistics professors to give graduate students an opportunity to explore the variety of research topics professors are engaged in and foster connections and partnerships between students and professors at ASU. The Graduate Statistics Club helps the local ASA chapter host the annual Data Fest, which is held at ASU. In addition, the Graduate Statistics Club invites ASU alumni who were part of the School of Mathematical and Statistical Sciences who are employed in industry and academia to share their experience and knowledge about being successful after graduation. Join Graduate Statistics Club via Sun Devil Sync.
The Association for Women in Mathematics at Arizona State University (AWM at ASU) is a student-run organization dedicated to closing the gender gap in mathematics. We are a group of undergraduate students, graduate students, post-docs, and faculty who have come together to create and foster a strong community around women interested in mathematics. Our club is a student chapter of the national Association for Women in Mathematics whose mission is to create a community in which women and girls can thrive in their mathematical endeavors, and to promote equitable opportunity and treatment of women and others of marginalized genders and gender identities across the mathematical sciences. The AWM Student Chapter is open to and welcomes everyone. Join the AWM club via SunDevilSync.
The Gamma Iota Sigma (GIS at ASU) Kappa Chapter is an international fraternity chapter at ASU. The purpose of this fraternity is to promote, encourage, and sustain student interest in insurance, risk management, and actuarial science as professions; to encourage the high moral and scholastic attainments of its members; and to facilitate interaction of educational institutions and industry through networking and by fostering research activities, scholarship, and improved public relations.
As members of the club, students have an opportunity to hear from actuaries at varying levels from both local and national actuarial firms. At club meetings, actuarial professionals share information about their respective companies and provide helpful employment advice. In addition to meeting with prospective employers, members will also participate in career-building activities, such as resume reviews and interview preparation. These activities help prepare actuarial students for summer internships and ultimately full-time employment.
The GIS at ASU Chapter also helps organize the annual career day each fall in September, which brings together potential employers with students.
The purpose of the Math Bio Club is to create an inclusive research community that makes math bio research accessible to all. We will provide peer-lead workshops that teach valuable research skills (both general and math bio focused) and a collaborative network to find meaningful ways to contribute to math bio research.
An interdisciplinary community based on the active exchange of ideas in industrial and applied mathematics, aiming to generate interest and promote research in the field while building a network with local industries and researchers in academia.
AMERICAN MATHEMATICAL SOCIETY (AMS) - ASU STUDENT CHAPTER
Note: this club is in the process of relaunching the ASU Student Chapter of AMS for 2022-2023. We will post the sundevilsync link when available
The objectives of the American Mathematical Society (AMS) Student Chapter are to:
- further the interests of mathematical scholarship and research
- facilitate networking and collaboration among mathematicians at Arizona State University and other institutions
- provide opportunities for the dissemination of research
- foster the growth of STEM field enrollment through community outreach, targeting underprivileged and underrepresented K-12 populations.
Other organizations of interest
Women in STEM is a partner organization of the Central Arizona Chapter of AWIS. The mission of this organization is to encourage networking among graduate and undergraduate students from different STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics) disciplines and offer professional development to promote the advancement of women in science.
The Graduate and Professional Student Association (GPSA) is the Graduate Student Government for all ASU Graduate Students. In fact, all graduate and professional students at ASU are already a part of GPSA. GPSA offers various support programs to graduate students including travel grants, research grants, and professional development programming. GPSA also has a variety of awards recognizing graduate student mentorship, research, teaching, and advocacy. GPSA also advocates for graduate student concerns on the local, state, and federal levels.
The Coalition of International Students (CIS) is a student led organization that acts as a bridge to reflect the needs of international students to university administration. We aim to enhance international student experience, promote cultural diversity and inclusivity in ASU through events and service..
