Why We Are Here
CMC3 as an organization is committed to engaging in anti-racist
practices, and engaging in discourse to address systemic issues of racism
and exclusion in STEM education. We continue to dedicate ourselves to the
empowerment of marginalized mathematics students from Northern California
Community Colleges. CMC3 has been doing so since 1972, although
the beginnings of CMC3 date to 1968. Officially the birthdate of
CMC3 is 1973.If you are curious about the origins of
CMC3 please view the
history of CMC3.
CMC3 is very lucky that the founders of our organization
recorded the history/origins of it.
The foundation again awarded several
to students that were both deserving and nominated by CMC3 members.

Why Support CMC3?
CMC3 was founded in 1972 to provide a forum through
which community college mathematics faculty in Northern and Central California
can express themselves professionally at the local, state, and national level,
as well as to support mathematical activity by students and faculty.
CMC3 works to improve the quality of mathematics
education in California and better prepare students for the future in which
they'll find themselves, one they not likely have expected.
The methods by which it does so include holding
Fall and Spring conferences,
funding scholarships through its foundation, and working with partners
to help the legislature and the Chancellor’s Office make the right
decisions on how to best serve students.
