HISTORY OF NDREU
In eight of the last eleven years at Notre Dame, the Mathematics Department
has offered an REU. Four Notre Dame students participated in the first
REU in the summer of 2000. This REU was an outgrowth of a major project
in the Mathematics Department, called the Seminar for Undergraduate
Mathematical Research (SUMR).
Since 1989, the Seminar for Undergraduate Mathematical Research has
been offered at Notre Dame to our most gifted Junior and Senior mathematics
students, who are also considering graduate school in one of the
mathematical sciences (usually Mathematics). Its goal has been
to increase the number of Notre Dame students pursuing graduate work
in the mathematical sciences. This goal is similar to the overall
goal of REU programs.
Of the forty-six former NDREU students, fifty-one have pursued a graduate degree in Mathematics or related sciences.
