    Duke University Math Union (DUMU)

    The Duke University Math Union (DUMU) is devoted to organizing and providing resources to students interested in mathematics. Throughout the year, we invite guest lecturers, organize social events and host a high school contest in mathematics.  DUMU also runs the annual Duke Math Meet

    The Lyceum

    Like DUMU, our group seeks to engage students on mathematical topics. But instead of doing so through mathematical competitions, The Lyceum takes a more social and discourse-based approach to studying interdisciplinary mathematics. As a group, we’re looking to challenge the stereotype of what a math major at Duke looks like and we hope to champion the diversity of our university’s many budding interdisciplinary scholars.

    Association for Women in Mathematics (AWM)

    The AWM Duke Student Chapter is a community of Duke undergraduate and graduate students associated with the national AWM organization.  Some of our chapter’s goals are to create a supportive local network of math students and faculty, engage in community outreach, foster dialogue on diversity and inclusion in mathematics, and connect with the larger AWM and Duke communities.

    Math Competitions

    Every year, several dozen Duke undergraduates participate in the Virginia Tech and Putnam math competitions. See recent and past competition honors received by Duke Undergraduates in these competitions.

    The Duke Math Meet (DMM) is a regional mathematics competition for high school students held at Duke University each year. The contest is organized by the members of the Duke University Mathematics Union (DUMU), and is sponsored by the Duke Mathematics department.
