The Community Relations Committee is composed of individuals who are strong supporters of the IMA's mission. Its role is to advocate for and articulate the value of the IMA to society. The committee works to foster strong support of the IMA through its alumni base and to develop external funding sources through contributions from individuals, corporations, and foundations.
The IMA Community Relations Committee seeks new members on an annual basis. Members are nominated to the committee and serve a three-year term. Duties of the committee include providing advice to the director on community relations issues and fundraising, and collaborating on special projects as appropriate. The committee meets twice a year in person or by teleconference. Please contact the chair of the committee Roger Lui with your suggestions and nominations.

The CRC has worked to support the IMA's Math Wall initiative, which is is now part of the institute's remodeled space on the third floor of Lind Hall. The Math Wall is filled with equations and figures submitted by IMA alumni and friends. This innovative tribute to mathematics would not be possible without the generous support from members of the IMA community. The CRC also works to support the IMA's K-12 Mathematics Outreach Program.
