Dr. Carol E. Malloy’s legacy in mathematics education continues to be felt. In honor of her lifetime work, the School of Education at the University of North Carolina is sponsoring a Symposium in Honor of the Legacy of Carol E. Malloy on October 10, 2015.

Receiving the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics Lifetime Achievement Award in 2013, Dr. Malloy was “a voice and a leader in mathematics education throughout her groundbreaking career. For more than four decades, the mathematics education community has felt her strong presence as a role model and an exemplar of the power of sincerity, grace, persistence, and action…. Not only did she provide a strong foundation in mathematics education to her students, but she also emphasized the role of mathematics education for addressing inequities in education.” (

The planning committee invites you to learn more about the Symposium and submit a proposal for a panel session or individual paper to the online submission system by July 1, 2015, here:
