The history of the AGMUS Institute of Mathematics began on September 1, 2008 when the National Science Foundation awarded UMET a five-year grant for $2,100,000 to implement a program to enhance bio mathematics at the Ana G. Méndez University System. The grant created a BS in Bio-Mathematics with scholarship opportunities for students with a GPA of 3.00 or higher and a commitment to pursue graduate studies in partner institutions in the US mainland.
During the summer, math scholars will travel to research institutions in the US mainland to work in research for a period of 8-10 weeks.
A pre-college research agenda will be Implemented on Saturdays under the Saturday Academy of the Student Research Development Center (SRDC) of the VicePresidency for Planning and Academic Affairs. Scholars of the AGMUS Institute of Mathematics will present research outcomes in symposia at the pre-college and undergraduate levels. The AGMUS Institute of Mathematics will implement a series of scientific talks on Fridays for undergraduates of AGMUS campuses and pre-college math teachers.
