About Our Events

Join us for lectures by visiting faculty on a variety of mathematical subjects and current research problems. Everyone is strongly encouraged to attend colloquia, and full-time graduate students are required to do so. Do not be discouraged if you do not understand talks in their entirety; the important thing is to gain initial exposure to different areas of mathematics and their basic problems.

Hear from distinguished GW scholars about their latest work in a variety of fields. Students are strongly encouraged to attend seminars to gain inspiration for future research projects and to network with experts in their area of interest. Find upcoming colloquia listed on this page when scheduled, and visit the Past Events page to explore past events by topic.

Coffee Hour

Since 2011, the weekly coffee hour has created opportunities for our faculty and students to meet regularly and interact with each other. It also serves as a platform for friends and guests to visit the department. We thank the Simons Foundation, whose collaborative grants have helped us to start the Coffee Hour. During the semester when campus is open, the coffee hour is held on Fridays from 2–3 p.m. or 3–4 p.m. in Phillips Hall 704/705.
