32nd Annual Lonseth Lecture

Should I study mathematics?

Tuesday, May 2, 2017 3:30 PM - 6:00 PM

The Department of Mathematics welcomes William Yslas Vélez as the speaker for the 32nd annual Lonseth Lecture. A Distinguished Professor at The University of Arizona known as the “Math Missionary,” Velez is a renowned teacher so dedicated to student success and diversity that he makes a point of meeting individually with minority first-year students to persuade them to register for calculus, his motto being “If you know mathematics, you can do anything.”

Please join us for this free public event on Tuesday, May 2, 2017, from 4:00-5:00 p.m. in LaSells Stewart Center’s Construction and Engineering Hall. The public is also invited to attend a departmental award ceremony preceding the lecture from 3:30-4 p.m. as well as a reception and student poster session after the lecture, from 5:00-6:00 p.m.
