A Great School With Great Staff And Diversity

Once upon a time, a man with the surname of Stevens established a school called Academy of Art University in 1929. The place has been in operation ever since then. The student body has grown, and it is now one of the most well-known art schools in the United States, as well as in the entire world. This beautiful, wonderful place houses students from all over the world.

Nobody is kept out on the basis of age, race, ethnicity, religion, sexual identity or gender identity. This shows in the numerous student clubs that have been set up to address the needs of specific demographics of the student body. There are various clubs that show a presence of minorities on campus.

San Francisco, the location of this top-rated school, is a prime location for artistic individuals. The infrastructure and architecture of the city are great to draw, sketch and make renditions of. The local vibes and culture are mentally stimulating—especially to those who are new to the city.

The estimated price of an undergraduate student’s annual tuition is about $26,000.00. Of course, it is generally more expensive than many community colleges and state universities. However, the resources and connections that you have access to make it worth your money.

The teachers are top-rated in their fields. You will not get a bunch of inexperienced, academia related individuals voicing their invalid opinions. Academy of Art University understands the importance of stocking their staff with people who have valid credentials and a good amount of work experience in their fields. Teachers who do not have real work experience may not be able to provide their students with realistic insights of the industries that they are teaching about. This is a problem for students who are serious about having real world knowledge.

Michael Lacey

Michael Thoreau Lacey is a graduate of University of Illinois as a PhD in Mathematics. After graduation his most important work would touch on 3 branches of statistical Physics which were: harmonic analysis, ergodic theory and probability.

Notable Works and Mentions

While at University of North Carolina, he worked with Walter Philip and soon published their proof on central limit theorem. In 1996 he joined Georgia Tech and the Guggenheim and the Simons Foundations have both recognized his research with awards. He plays a valuable role in student grants for undergraduates, post-graduates and postdocs. Two of these grants include VIGRE and MCTP out of NSF.

His Mentoring

What’s most impressive is his mentoring. He is on record for mentoring at least 10 post docs and has also mentored undergraduates who successfully undertook graduate programs. His mentoring has also resulted in PhD students’ successful entry into industry and academic employment.

The Math Alliance

The goal of the Math Alliance of which Michael Lacey is an affiliate, has a notable goal. This goal is to bring access to doctoral degrees to those groups that are largely underrepresented. This is breaking what has been traditionally put in place to exclude these groups.

One of the over arching reasons for this organization and an integral part of the Math Alliance is the promotion and preservation of diversity in the mathematical academic community. Read more: Michael Lacey | GAtech and Michael Lacey | Wikipedia

This would bring more extensive doctorate and PhD programs to areas that would ordinarily not be considered or would be overlooked. This builds a stronger mathematical community.
