POSITION STATEMENT

EQUAL OPPORTUNITY IN MATHEMATICS

The American Mathematical Association of Two-Year Colleges (AMATYC) supports increased participation of under-represented groups in mathematics and related fields. To address this need, AMATYC will provide leadership in increasing the participation of all people in mathematics and related areas regardless of age, physical challenge, gender, race or ethnicity.

Therefore, AMATYC recommends:

  • That all students be given the opportunity to develop critical thinking skills and to increase their understanding of mathematics and its applications.
  • That all mathematics faculty be sensitive to the issues of pluralism and diversity in their classrooms.
  • That all institutions appoint, promote, and retain qualified and diverse mathematics faculty.
  • That all policy makers at the national, state and local levels provide educational institutions the support necessary to achieve equal opportunities for groups under-represented in mathematics.
