Mathematics Programs That Make a Difference

In the fall of each year, the Committee on the Profession reviews nominations for these awards.

For Department Leaders: 

In 2004, the AMS Committee on the Profession decided to create a series of information statements relating to the evaluation of mathematicians. The goal of this series of statements on the culture of research and scholarship in mathematics is to highlight the ways in which the traditions in mathematics differ from those in other disciplines, especially other sciences and engineering.
