Building community is a constant practice and the Mathematical Theoretical Biology Institute knows it. The Mathematical Computational Modeling Center at Arizona State University brings Dr. Holmes back for the fourth year to kick off the MTBI program. The summer of intensive applied mathematics for undergraduate students is characterized by intense collaborative projects that have students developing research skills on issues they care about.

Educators in public institutions are committed to creating an environment in which students from all walks of life are able to learn and grow. In the past few years, America’s differences and divisions around race, gender and politics in the country are increasingly visible. We have come to recognize that people in America are talking only with people whose opinions, life experiences and beliefs are similar to their own.

The American Meteorological Society* (AMS) created the Early Career Leadership Academy (ECLA) to develop scientists’ capacity to advance science with scientific accomplishments and social leadership. At the ECLA's Washington D.C. meeting, Dr. Holmes joins the 34 early career leaders who work in different sectors of the weather, water and climate (WWC) science enterprise.

Say yes to Turn Difficult Situations into New Possibilities. This half-day professional development workshop held in the San Francisco Bay Area and New York City is led by Marian Rich, founder of Career Play Inc., and Dr. Holmes, founder of improvscience. (Register here.)
