Mathematics professor emerita Marie Vitulli continues to distinguish herself

Marie Vitulli, professor emerita of mathematics, was honored in January as a Fellow of the Association for Women in Mathematics, during the Joint Mathematics Meetings in Baltimore. The AWM Fellows Program was established “to recognize individuals who have demonstrated a sustained commitment to the support and advancement of women in the mathematical sciences, consistent with the AWM mission: ‘to encourage women and girls to study and to have active careers in the mathematical sciences, and to promote equal opportunity and the equal treatment of women and girls in the mathematical sciences.’”

Also in January, Vitulli delivered a Distinguished Speaker Series Lecture at Clemson University titled “Algebra and Geometry Throughout History: A Symbiotic Relationship.” The School of Mathematical and Computer Sciences and the Clemson Chapter of the Association for Women in Mathematics hosted her visit.

While at Clemson, Vitulli facilitated a Wikipedia Edit-a-Thon to train people to edit and write Wikipedia pages to help increase the representation of women and underrepresented groups in Wikipedia.
