Summary: On the surface, the Carleton College Summer Mathematics Program for Women Undergraduates (SMP) looks like many other summer programs: students spend several weeks engaging with mathematics with peers from a variety of institutions. However, SMP offers both formal and informal mentoring activities that go far beyond one summer, providing support to participants through critical stages of their mathematical careers. The result is a strong community of successful women in mathematics.
