UMass Lowell Pi Mu Epsilon

Pi Mu Epsilon logo

As stated at the Pi Mu Epsilon home page (, Pi Mu Epsilon, Inc (PME), is the Honorary National Mathematics Society. It was founded on May 25, 1914 at Syracuse University and currently has over 300 chapters at colleges and universities throughout the United States. The purpose of PME is the promotion of scholarly activity in mathematics among the students in academic institutions.

The chapter at UMass Lowell (the Massachusetts Delta chapter) was established in 1978. Prof. Virginia Taylor was the faculty advisor for many years. When she retired, the chapter became inactive. Our chapter was reactivated in 2007 by PME Council member Brigitte Servatius, Professor of Mathematical Sciences at Worcester Polytechnic Institute, who inducted eleven new student members.
