## Marie Vitulli – 2019 class of AWM Fellows

Congratulations to Marie Vitulli for being selected to be part of the 2019 class of AWM Fellows

Marie A. Vitulli, University of Oregon, was selected as a 2019 AWM Fellow for her exceptional efforts to promote women in mathematics through her active participation in AWM, on Facebook, in Wikipedia, and in writing AMS Notices articles; for her contributions to commutative algebra and algebraic geometry.

## AWM Student Chapter Award

The University of Oregon Student Chapter of the Association for Women in Mathematics has been chosen to receive the 2018 Chapter Award for Scientific Excellence. The purpose of this award is to reward a student chapter for organizing and hosting a scientific program of excellent quality in the form of a local conference or speaker series, or for its collaborative work with nearby industry or government organizations by highlighting women in mathematics or by demonstrating the power and fascination of mathematics. Our chapter was recognized primarily for its Distinguished Lecture Series. Congratulations to all members of our AWM Student Chapter.
