[1 Mar 2019 | Comments Off on Jo Hardin | ]

Jo Hardin’s father was an actuary so she thought about having a career in a mathematical field. But once she got to college, she fell in love with academia and found herself working toward a career as a statistics professor. She is now professor of mathematics at Pomona College. She is also a mentor for a group of students from the Chicago Public School District. Additionally, she started a program at Pomona College, Pomona Scholars of Mathematics (PSM), designed to build community and support students who are navigating college mathematics. Happily, quite a few of the inaugural PSM students are now in graduate programs in the mathematical sciences.
