We are looking for students and early-career faculty to become invested in addressing issues of underrepresentation in higher education. In this effort, we are asking all participants, especially those who have received financial support to attend USTARS, to be part of our "Pay it Forward" campaign.
Here are just a few ways some people have made a difference in your local community:
Not So Math
Pedro Morales has created a Facebook page and podcast that allows people to discover math in a not so math way!
Mohamed Omar has been creating and uploading YouTube videos to help students preparing to take the GRE Math subject test. As the tagline states, he uploads "Mathematics videos to simplify your life and entertain you!"
Alexander Diaz-Lopez, Pamela E. Harris, and Gabriel Sosa helped to create an accessible platform that features prominently the extent of the research and mentoring contributions of Latin@s and Hispanics in different areas of the Mathematical Sciences. The website has recently featured a calendar for National Hispanic Heritage month that spotlights one mathematician each day.
Candice Price recently started a Facebook group that is connecting fellow minorities in the mathematical sciences. Because a strong network is a crucial aspect of professional development, the aim of the group is to fortify the networks of minorities in the mathematical sciences by simply finding and connecting as many of us as possible.

Women in Noncommutative Algebra and Representation Theory
Women in Noncommutative Algebra and Representation Theory is a website that serves as a resource for female mathematicians whose research interests lie in Noncommutative Algebra and Representation Theory. Follow the link below to check it out.
Servando Pineda-Carranza is currently a part of the Center for Science and Math Education team at San Francisco State University. Here, Math Supplemental Instruction courses are used to help increase the retention percentage of minorities in STEM. For more information, check out the link below.
Servando Pineda-Carranza help to co-found San Francisco Math Camp, which aims to provide positive math experiences to elementary, middle school, and high school students in a summer camp setting. San Francisco Math Camp is going on its third year this summer. Click the link below for more information.
