What are SUBgroups?

Welcome! If you would like an email reminder when we open SUBgroups registration for our Fall 2020 cohorts, click here.

What are SUBgroups?

  • small online peer groups of first-year math grad students
  • regularly-scheduled video chat sessions to support and connect with first-years in other programs
  • chances to share our successes and struggles, to lift up others, and to bridge into new math experiences. Learn more.

Here’s what some SUBgroups participants had to say:

“I liked being able to talk to other students who had similar experiences to me. It was a place where I could safely vent about my own school/cohort. It was neat to learn about different programs and how they function.”

“I felt like I was able to learn a lot about other peoples’ experiences and that helped make me feel that I was not alone.”

“You should do it. There are a lot of great people in the math community, and this can help you start to meet them!”


Over 60 first-year math grad students were a part of our SUBgroups cohorts in Fall 2019!

Grad programs across many states were represented, as well as programs in Canada and around the world!
