In 1989 the Alpha Delta Chapter of Pi Mu Epsilon was established at Geneseo. Each year we induct our best students into this prestigious national honor society.
It was founded on May 25, 1914 at Syracuse University. The purpose of Pi Mu Epsilon is the promotion of scholarly activity in mathematics among the students in academic institutions and among staffs of qualified non-academic institutions.
Each spring, the Pi Mu Epsilon coordinator reviews the transcripts of current mathematics majors with sophomore standing, or above. Candidates must meet both internal standards of excellence and the nationally set criteria to be inducted. I list of recent inductees can be found here.
The Mathematics Department acknowledges its excellent students with memberships in its professional organizations.
The awards are granted through nominations from the Ad Hoc Scholarship Committee which are submitted to the department for discussion and a vote.
Each spring, the department acknowledges its outstanding graduating seniors with several distinct awards. Each award --a certificate and gift-- is presented at the annual senior dinner. The recipients are acknowledged in the Commencement Bulletin. The number and category of awards may vary from year to year just as graduating classes differ form year to year.
Each spring, the Ad Hoc Scholarship Committee reviews the transcripts of all graduating seniors and solicits information from the faculty as to the students' excellence in mathematical activities that do not appear on the transcript, such as participation in poster sessions, research, etc.. The committee recommends the number and type of awards, together with a list of candidates to the department for a vote.
To promote scholarly work in mathematics among our students, the Alpha Delta Chapter of Pi Mu Epsilon is offering a prize for our top scoring students on the annual William Lowell Putnam mathematics competition in the fall and the University of Rochester Math Olympiad in the spring.
