Samford University’s Department of Math and Computer Science will host a research colloquium series starting Feb. 9 and extending through the spring semester. Series organizer Kwadwo Antwi-Fordjour said the events will introduce math and computer science faculty research to the Samford community and also “draw students to the habit of doing research with faculty, and inculcate them into this culture.”

The department encourages interdisciplinary collaboration, and invites faculty and students from throughout the university to attend the Wednesday events in person or online in February, March and April.
