CMS Stands in Solidarity with Laurentian University Colleagues and Students

The Canadian Mathematical Society denounces the closure of academic programs, including Mathematics and Physics, at the Laurentian University and expresses solidarity with colleagues who have lost their jobs and students who have seen their program disrupted. The CMS emphasises the importance of mathematical research and education in Canadian universities and hopes that the affected colleagues are able to reintegrate promptly in academia.
