VIGRE II:Vertical Integration of Research and Education
Department of Mathematics --University of Georgia
VIGRE Undergraduate Study Area
The Mathematics Department of the University of Georgia is pleased to announce the grand opening of our new undergraduate study area in Boyd 308. The Mathematics Department has provided the Undergraduate Study Area (USA) in order to meet our students' need for a space within the mathematics building to study and collaborate in groups while remaining in close proximity to their instructors and classrooms. The USA will also facilitate casual mathematical interaction between students and faculty before and after their classes.
The USA will integrate the undergraduate majors more closely into the mathematical life of the department by providing them with personal lockers to store their books and a space in which to work together on mathematics. The USA will also host drop-in tutoring hours for all mathematics students. The USA is a modern and comfortable space in the mathematics department equipped with seating for 25 students to work alone or in small groups, laptop power outlets, wifi, a conference room, a reference library of mathematics texts, and a coffeemaker.
The USA was completed with support from the Office of the Vice President for Research (OVPR), the Office of the Vice President for Instruction (OVPI), personal contributions from members of the mathematics department, including Jim and Nancy Cantrell, and the National Science Foundation, through the Mathematics Department's VIGRE grant. The room was designed by Leslie DiSimone of Physical Plant.
