Graduate Math Workshops

In 2010, three international mathematicians visited Maseno University for two weeks to work with local graduate students. The goal of this workshop was to expose the students to the current flavour of mathematics at the level of international researchers, and also to give the visiting scholars insight into the conditions within the Kenyan university system.

These workshops provide a key tool for getting international involvement in math education for the developing world, while also educating future researchers within Kenya about the expectations and rewards of mathematics on the global scale.

Following the success of the first workshops in 2010, Maseno plans to continue hosting workshops for graduate students in subsequent years.
