Please let us know if you have questions and concerns by emailing USTARS.firstname.lastname@example.org.

Invited Faculty Speaker:

The primary mission of the Underrepresented Students in Topology and Algebra Research Symposium (USTARS) is to showcase the excellent research conducted by underrepresented students studying topology and algebra. Dedicated to furthering the success of underrepresented students, USTARS seeks to broaden the participation in the mathematical sciences by cultivating research and mentoring networks. USTARS is open to all people interested in the topological and algebraic fields.
(Our definition of underrepresented includes the definition provided the National Science Foundation: minorities (African American, Hispanic, and Native American), women, and individuals with physical disabilities.)
