Alumni & Friends

We hope that you will regularly visit this website for the latest news about the Department of Mathematics.

We invite you to share your career experiences with our students, who are always interested in connecting with alumni. The Department, in conjunction with the Alumni Office, hosts Career Conversation dinners with alumni and undergraduate students.

At the graduate level, the Department sponsors an annual Graduate Alumni Conference that combines research talks with discussions of career experiences.

Would you be willing to speak to students preparing for co-op, in a classroom setting?
Students are eager to hear about how their classroom education transfers to the workplace and about potential career choices. We invite you, as Northeastern alumni/alumnae, to speak with students about the importance of the co-op experience to you, what to expect in a co-op position, and what you have been doing since graduation.

Would you be willing to hire a co-op student? 
The development of new positions and new employer relationships is a primary focus of the co-op Program. Please visit the Employer section of this website for additional information about hiring a co-op student.

Have you considered mentoring a current Northeastern student?
Students need all of the support they can get while obtaining their degree. They would welcome the opportunity to be able to have a mentor who has graduated from Northeastern and knows the field of mathematics.

Whether you want to be involved or just stay in touch:
Please contact Lisa Campagnoni at or 617.373.2736

We look forward to hearing from you!

Thank you to our Sponsors

The Mathematics Department gratefully acknowledges the generosity various alumni and friends who have established funds to support our students, faculty and programs.

Robert G. Stone Endowed Professorship: This fund has allowed the Mathematics Department to hire a series of Stone Visiting Professors. These are prominent mathematicians who spend 4-6 months in our Department making important contributions to our scholarly mission: they teach an advanced graduate course, give several high-profile lectures, and engage in research discussions with our faculty. The fund has also been used temporarily to upgrade a junior position in order make high-profile senior appointments. An example of this is the current Stone Professor, Jonathan Weitsman, who received his appointment in Fall 2008.

Ling-Ma Scholarship Fund: This fund offers summer support for graduate students. Generally, the summer support each year is given to a small number of PhD candidates who are working on their doctoral dissertations.

Jim Dow & Lucille Zanghi: Thanks to the generosity of Jim Dow ‘72, and his wife Lucille Zanghi ’72 (History), a portion of the income from their endowed fund supports the Bridge to Calculus, an enrichment program sponsored by the Department that seeks to overcome the achievement gap by promoting minority student achievement in advanced calculus at the John D. O’Bryant High School of Mathematics and Science.
