The Riverbend Community Math Center has collaborated with many different departments and programs at Notre Dame.
Professors Jeff Diller and Sonja Mapes serve on our board of directors, and many other professors, post-docs, and students from Notre Dame have participated or served as instructors or volunteers in several of our programs. We have also assisted many Notre Dame faculty members with the design and implementation of their own STEM outreach programs.
Since 2015, we have assisted Notre Dame with a grant to recruit undergraduate students of color for a summer program in geometry and topology and ultimately as graduate students in their math department.
Professor Matt Gursky obtained a grant to support a two-week residential summer camp for ChiS&E (high school students from Chicago) at Notre Dame during the summers of 2019 and 2020.
The Office of Community Relations generously allowed the Math and Technology Academy, Math Circle, Community Research and Family Math programs to utilize space in the Notre Dame Community Relations building in downtown South Bend for several years. Notre Dame hosted the Math Circle Teacher Training Institutes that we co-organized with Bob and Ellen Kaplan of the Boston Math Circle during the summers of 2008 through 2016.
The Riverbend Community Math Center has assisted with Notre Dame programs such as Research Experience for Teachers and other community outreach and teacher preparation programs. We also assisted the office of student disabilities with tutoring and specialized coursework for a blind chemistry major.
