Bentley University Mathematical Sciences Chair Richard Cleary Appointed Board Chair of Joint Data Committee
In February, Professor and Chair of Mathematical Sciences Richard Cleary was appointed to a two-year term as chair of the Joint Data Committee of five mathematical organizations: Mathematical Association of America; American Mathematical Society; American Statistical Association; the Institute of Mathematical Statistics; and Society of Industrial and Applied Mathematics. The committee helps monitor the profession in many aspects, among them employment trends for new PhDs; enrollments in graduate and undergraduate programs; diversity issues; and faculty salaries.
As committee chair, Cleary will co-write several articles with staff members from sponsoring societies, which will appear in top journals such as Notices of the American Mathematical Society.
The Yawkey Foundations have recognized Bentley University’s longstanding commitment to service-learning and awarded the university $500,000 to educate students to effectively lead nonprofit organizations and expand student efforts to help community groups.
