Announcing a Faculty Fellowship Program for 2019-2020

The Center for Inquiry and Equity in Mathematics

is pleased to announce a


for mathematics teacher education faculty

who teach either elementary or secondary pre- service teachers.


The Fellowship has a summer and academic year component:

    • During the summer, Fellows will attend an institute in Pittsburgh, August 5-9, 2019, in which they:
        • Ask and investigate their own mathematics questions, with each other and with mathematicians. 
        • Reflect together on the experience of asking and investigating those questions with a particular focus on issues of status and equity, in “Mathequity Sessions” (Winger, Young, Stovall, Sword, Badertscher, Gates, McDowall, & Cuoco, 2018).
      • Strategize together about how to infuse their own existing courses for pre-service teachers with opportunities to ask and investigate their own questions, attending to issues of status and equity
  • During the school year, Fellows will partner with mathematicians from the Mathematicians of Color Alliance. The mathematicians will visit (virtually or in person) the Fellows’ classes for pre-service teachers to talk about mathematics; thus changing those pre-service teachers’ ideas about who does mathematics.

Who is this Fellowship for?

We know many mathematics education faculty have thought deeply about issues of equity and about what mathematics is; however, we believe that these issues are so core to the work of mathematics education that we as mathematics educators need spaces for continued growth. This program is for those mathematics educators who wish to continue  to interrogate what mathematics is and who is welcome to do it – in community with other educators and in service of empowering future teachers to do the same work.

Space is limited, so we recommend applying early.
