The mission of the Department of Mathematics and Statistics is to instill an appreciation of the intrinsic beauty, the diverse origins, and the practical aspects of mathematics and statistics.

To this end, the department:

  • provides students well-balanced academic programs at the baccalaureate and master's degree levels;
  • functions as a scholarly unit promoting faculty and student research; and
  • serves as a resource for mathematical expertise to the university and to the larger community.

More specifically, the department dedicates itself to:

  • providing the highest quality educational experience possible to undergraduate and graduate students within the majors and minors in the Department of Mathematics and Statistics and to students enrolled in General Education Program courses and service courses for other programs;
  • fostering involvement in research by both students and faculty; and
  • providing meaningful service to the EMU academic community, to the disciplines of our faculty, to the broader mathematical and statistical community, and to the local and regional communities.
