Welcome to the


The Directed Reading Program (DRP) is a one-on-one mathematics mentoring program in which graduate students or junior faculty members mentor undergrads in reading and research projects. 

A committee of graduate students pairs mentors and undergraduate student participants according to their mutual interests. The pairs work together during the Winter and Spring quarters. 

At the end of the program, mentees type a report reflecting on their progress and present on their work primarily through a large poster session.

We're proud to support many professional development events throughout the program, with a variety of expert panels. Check out the timeline to see a tentative schedule of this year's events.
