Donate and vote for the ACMS Student Organization and SIAM Student Chapter at Notre Dame to help us earn a portion of the $1,000,000 being awarded to Notre Dame organizations! This year, a $10 donation will likely be matched to at least a $50-$60 impact! During the Notre Dame Day (notredameday.nd.edu) broadcast kicking-off at 18:42 pm ET (6:42 m ET), you’ll have 29-hours to donate and cast your votes while also encouraging your friends and family to do the same via # NDday! Your contribution to our organization will help us better serve our and SIAM’s (Society of Industrial and Applied Mathematics) Mission to support student development and community at Notre Dame. As an organization, we support all ACMS and STEM students as they develop their skills in applied mathematics as well as interdisciplinary fields of study while providing opportunities to socialize and prepare for future career goals by engaging with research opportunities, outreach programs, career professionals, and industry partners. We thank you for your support!
Your $10 gift now and through Notre Dame Day (April 23 – 24) earns you 5 votes to cast, which allows you to decide the portion of $1 Million Notre Dame will award to campus organizations. Funding we receive through this year’s campaign will support an inaugural regional conference specifically for ACMS, STEM, and SIAM students at Notre Dame and nearby institutions to be organized Spring 2018. This conference would prioritize student involvement and also aim to strongly support women and underrepresented minorities in STEM fields. Supporting us make this and our other events a reality, which include professional development through industry connections like NASA Glenn Research Center, Argonne National Lab, and the Center for Research Computing at Union Station Technology Center. We hope you choose to vote for us during Notre Dame Day 2017 so that we can continue to create and implement programs which foster the leadership potential and academic success of society’s future leaders of technological innovation and research.
As a relatively new organization established in 2015, your donations would enable us to expand our current level of professional development support limited currently by the funding available from SIAM and allocations from the ACMS Department. Broader support will allow us to establish an inaugural conference for Spring 2018 as well as further develop community educational partnerships with the South Bend City and Penn-Harris-Madison school districts where we aim to inspire future scientists through math education and computer programming literacy.
