Why did we create this page?

from Hiro Lee Tanaka

Each contributor probably has a different reason for contributing to the page. I personally created this page because there are cultural norms and standards within mathematics that are not immediately transparent to an undergraduate. Just as there are resources for learning about mathematics, it makes sense to have resources to learn about how mathematicians select each other; it's my hope that a site like this will make it easier for students (especially those without easy access to people who can communicate these norms) to move forward in their careers.
