In 04-05 I was the faculty adviser for the UC Davis Math Club .
I am currently involved in STEM Cafe (which used to be Math Cafe), a mathematics-related club at the University of California, Davis, founded with the goal of encouraging students to succeed and continue their education in mathematic fields. It seeks for ways to let students tackle mathematics more comfortably and confidently outside of the classroom. A focus is on females as they are an underrepresented minority in mathematics, but people of all genders are welcome to visit. Winter 2018, STEM Cafe meets certain evenings close to midterms and finals in 114 North Hall (Women's Center Library). See this link STEM Cafe for details. (Winter 2018: Tues Mar 13 12:30-2:30pm; Thurs Mar 15 3:30-5:30pm) Additionally, WRRC is happy to send a representative to your classroom to give info.

If you are speaking in the Discrete Mathematics Seminar here is some information for speakers.
