Donations can be made one of two ways:
Mission Statement:Indiana NExT is a network of Indiana mathematics professionals and college/university mathematics faculty promoting professional development and networking opportunities for its members wishing to further engage with the mathematics community and use effective methods for teaching mathematics. There is a particular emphasis on offering support for new faculty members and beginning educators. Indiana NExT works closely with the Indiana Section of the Mathematics Association of America (IN-MAA), functions as a subcommittee of the IN-MAA, and has the same overarching mission as the MAA’s Project NExT:
“[That its members] would become leaders within the profession, their MAA Section, and in the greater MAA community.”
How to join:All members of Indiana NExT must either be currently employed as mathematics faculty, work in a mathematics-related ﬁeld, or otherwise be engaged with mathematics or mathematics education within Indiana. A member of Indiana NExT cannot be a member of another NExT section.
New members will be recruited if the meet they requirements listed above and one of the following takes place:
(a) He/she is admitted into the national Project NExT program.
