About the Department and School:
The Department of Mathematics exists to support the study and
advancement of mathematics. Mathematical reasoning is a uniquely
effective method of describing and analyzing human experience. As
such, it is an indispensable part of any education in the sciences
or liberal arts.
Combining the traditional focus of a liberal arts mathematics
education with modern technology, we aim to create an environment
that fosters quantitative reasoning and deductive thinking, while
promoting mathematical understanding. At all levels of the
mathematics curriculum students develop a broad understanding of
the field of mathematics and its historical development, the
interdisciplinary applications of mathematics, and the role
mathematics plays in the careers they choose.
The Department seeks to ensure that all Marist students are given a
basic understanding of mathematical reasoning and some experience
of its application. More advanced techniques and interpretative
skills are taught to those whose chosen disciplines require them.
The Department offers major and minor courses of study that
initiate students into the active practice and use of mathematics.
Mathematics majors are provided with the background necessary to
pursue careers in industry, to teach at the secondary school level,
or to succeed in further graduate study.
The Department also actively supports the scholarly activities of
both its faculty and students. It strives to provide appropriate
mathematical services as well as to make the principles and use of
mathematics known to the wider community outside of Marist.

protected groups found to be under-represented.
Equal opportunity means employment, development, and promotion of
individuals without consideration of race, color, disability,

occupational requirement which excludes persons in one of these
protected groups. The College will review its employment policies

exclude protected groups are identified and eliminated. The College
will also explore alternative approaches if any policy or practice
is found to have a negative impact on protected groups.
Marist's policy of non-discrimination includes not only employment
practices but also extends to all services and programs provided by
the College. It shall be considered a violation of College policy
for any member of the community to discriminate against any
individual or group with respect to employment or attendance at

age, sex, marital status, national origin, sexual orientation,
veteran status, or any other condition established by law.
