Introducing Metro NExT

The Metropolitan New York Section of the MAA is pleased to introduce a special program aimed at supporting new and rising Ph.D's in mathematics or mathematics education. Metro NExT (New Experiences in Teaching) will be a local version of the highly successful national MAA program Project NExT. Like Project NExT, Metro NExT's goal is to support new and pre-tenured faculty who are interested in improving the teaching and learning of undergraduate mathematics.

Benefits of Metro NExT Fellowship

Metro NExT aims to provide mathematicians in the metropolitan New York area who have recently entered the profession with practical information about, and concrete suggestions for, implementing more effective pedagogical and professional strategies, ranging from new teaching methods to writing grant proposals and balancing teaching and research responsibilities. Metro NExT events will also provide opportunities for its fellows to meet other young professionals, socialize and network. Furthermore Metro NExT fellows will be invited to participate in some future Project NExT events including those at the Joint Meetings and at Mathfest.

Metro NExT is open to all Metropolitan New York MAA Section faculty members holding a Ph.D. in mathematics or mathematics education and having full-time, pre-tenure status at a post-secondary institution. Metro NExT is also open to all graduate mathematics or mathematics education students in their final two years of doctoral study.
