Policy and Advocacy
The American Mathematical Society (AMS) plays a critical role in representing mathematics on Capitol Hill as the foundational discipline upon which technological innovation and global competitiveness depends. The AMS works with government agencies, professional organizations, universities, coalitions, business and industry to advocate for science and mathematics.
The Washington Office of the AMS is at the center of our science policy and advocacy efforts. It provides an important link between the federal government and the mathematical community.
"It was an honor to represent the AMS at the Coalition for national Science Funding (CNSF) exhibition. I learned a tremendous amount about the vital work that the AMS is doing in Washington DC and had a chance to speak with nearly a dozen different representatives and their staff about the important of federal mathematics research funding." -- Philip T. Gressman (University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia)
