Upcoming events sponsored by the Department of Mathematics:

Undergraduate Math Day

A biennial event featuring plenary speakers and contributed talks by and of interest to undergraduate students with an interest in mathematics about how mathematics shapes our world, the University of Dayton Undergraduate Mathematics Day will be held Nov. 6, 2021.

More Information
Kenneth C. Schraut Memorial Lecture

This annual invited lecture is made possible by the generous support of alumni donations in memory of Dr. Kenneth C. Schraut, who taught mathematics at the University of Dayton for many years. 

The 2021 Schraut Lecture will be given by Dr. Suzanne Lenhart, a Chancellor's professor in the Mathematics Department at the University of Tennessee. This 21st Annual Kenneth C. Schraut Memorial Lecture will be held in conjunction with Undergraduate Mathematics Day.

The 2020 Schraut Lecture was cancelled due to public health measures taken by the University to combat the spread of COVID-19. The 20th Annual Schraut Lecture was be given by Dr. Tommy Ratliff on Nov. 2, 2019 in conjunction with the biennial Undergraduate Mathematics Day.
