Solutions Across Disciplines

Our researchers collaborate across departments, across universities, and across the globe.

Important Message Regarding COVID-19

To our valued students, visitors, and partners:

We have begun to phase in our on-campus presence in order to provide the best possible service in the safest way possible for our students, faculty, staff and visitors.  As such, Levin Center staff began working part-time in the office on Monday, August 10. It is our intention to be available Monday through Friday, 8 am to 4 pm, but please be advised that there may be some lapses in physical presence due to staff availability and university guidelines.  Office doors will be closed and signage should indicate office hours; please knock on the door within those hours!  Please also be aware that capacity restrictions to meet social distancing requirements will be in place.  Face covers are REQUIRED for anyone in the building.

The JBMSHP Resource Center will be open for limited capacity Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday, 8:30 am to 4:00 pm, but will be closed on Wednesdays.  Virtual tutoring will be available online.

We will still be available to assist via email, phone, and other electronic resources during vacancy hours. To reach our team during regular business hours:

General information: 480-965-2115; if no staff are available, the call will forward to our associate director director or call 480-309-4787.

Thank you for your patience and understanding during this unprecedented situation. We appreciate your support and will do our best to assist you as quickly and efficiently as possible. Please be safe and stay positive!

Welcome to the Levin Center.  Our mission is to bridge the gap between the biological, mathematical, environmental, and social sciences.  At the Levin Center, we train the next generation of researchers to focus on solutions rather than academic disciplines.

Joaquin Bustoz Math-Science Honors Program (JBMSHP)

The Joaquin Bustoz Math-Science Honors Program is an intense academic program that provides motivated students an outstanding opportunity to begin university mathematics and science studies before graduating high school. The program is designed to provide a successful university experience for students who are underrepresented in the mathematics and science fields and to enhance their prospects for future academic success.

AMLSS Degree Programs
(B.S. and Ph.D.)

Applied Mathematics for the Life and Social Sciences (AMLSS) investigates and integrates complex areas of the physical, life and social sciences while preparing a new generation of students in mathematics. The objective of these programs is to develop critical thinking skills and purposeful competencies in mathematics, as well as an appreciation for the contributions of mathematics to the fields of science, engineering, business, government and economics.

Mathematical and Theoretical
Biology Institute (MTBI)

The Mathematical and Theoretical Biology Institute supports the development of students through educational, research and mentorship activities from the undergraduate to the postdoctoral level. Its programs include intensive summer research training programs, long-term support for alumni, continuous research opportunities for undergraduate, graduate and postdoctoral students and opportunities for national and international visitors.
