Dewar, Jacqueline (ed.) et al., Mathematics education. A spectrum of work in mathematical sciences departments. Cham: Springer (ISBN 978-3-319-44949-4/hbk; 978-3-319-44950-0/ebook). Association for Women in Mathematics Series 7, 213-226 (2016).
Summary: Roosevelt University is a private, comprehensive master’s institution with a social justice mission. Faculty are expected to cultivate excellent teaching, create significant amounts of research, and perform much service work. It is challenging to find time for all three when they are approached as distinct tasks. The mathematics department has developed creative activities that integrate all of these professional responsibilities resulting in a significant change in departmental culture. Faculty have added large- and small-scale projects to courses. They are now working with more students on undergraduate research and have created a venue, the Math x-Position, to showcase student work. This was all accomplished by ongoing faculty mentoring, combining teaching and research, and by fostering a safe environment for innovation.
