Outreach Activities via McGill and Beyond

The Department provides opportunities for the community at large to cultivate interest in Mathematics and Statistics. Moreover, we promote the efforts of other organizations throughout Montreal sharing a similar cause. We provide information on such activities here.

CEGEP Supervision Program

The department offers a mentoring program for very strong Cégep students who are writing a research project in mathematics at the end of their program. Faculty members and postdoctoral fellows can propose a research project and supervise a team of 1 to 3 students in working on this project. The participating colleges at the moment are Marianopolis, Vanier and Champlain.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the CEGEP Supervision Program is currently on hold.

Directed Reading Program

The Directed Reading Program, or DRP, is a program which pairs undergraduate students interested in research with graduate students in the appropriate field. The purpose of the program is to give undergraduate students an opportunity to connect with graduate students
who can give them a taste for graduate level research projects and reading assignments, as well as give them advice for their transition from undergrad to grad school.


Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the DRP Program is currently on hold.

Concordia Math Circle

Concordia University hosts workshops for enthusiastic kids interested in learning more advanced mathematics. The program is approximately 8-9 workshops in a semester. Many participants also take part in math contests. The activities are catered to children in grades 5 or above.


Canadian Math Kangaroo Contest

The Canadian Math Kangaroo Contest (CMKC) is a volunteer-run, not-for-profit organization which aims to spread the joy of mathematics. The CMKC Corporation is administered by mathematicians and teachers of mathematics who cooperate with other professionals in order to
provide an atmosphere and conditions suitable for motivating students to learn. The contest's main purpose is to promote mathematical thinking and stimulate an interest in math, by providing students with an opportunity to compare their abilities against the abilities of other
students, from different countries around the world. In the past several years, the geography of the participating countries has been extended outside Europe, to USA, Paraguay, Mexico, Canada, etc.


Social Equity and Diversitiy Office (SEDE)

The Social Equity and Diversity Office (SEDE) provides information, education and training to all areas of the University in order to cultivate a respectful and supportive campus. The Branches' Community Engagement programs hosts a variety of events, projects, and
workshops aimed at helping get you involved and addressing needs in the Indigenous Montreal community.
