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 scholarships to students that were both deserving and nominated by CMC3 members.

It is again that time of year when the foundation is taking scholarship nominations.

2024 Fall Conference

CMC3's 2024 Fall Conference, our 52st, will be held at Solano Community College.

2024 Spring Conference

The 2024 Spring Conference, our 28th annual spring conference, is set to unfold through a series of five presentations given throughout the months of March and April. In response to attendee feedback, we've opted to maintain the online conference format, offering participants the chance to experience a series of 1-hour presentations spread across a couple of months, as opposed to condensing everything into a single day. Additionally, these presentations will be recorded providing members with the convenience to revisit and engage with the content at their leisure throughout the entire year.

This Spring Speaker Series is included in the price of our yearly membership and is free to current members of CMC3.

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 AMATYC and CMC3 South to help the legislature and the Chancellor’s Office make the right decisions on how to best serve students.
