A Tennessee university professor recently made the case that undergraduate mathematics education is discriminatory against queer and transgender students of color. Luis Leyva, assistant professor of mathematics education at Vanderbilt University in Nashville, described it as a "white, cisheteropatriarchal space" during a lecture at the Joint Mathematics Meetings 2023, the "largest mathematics gathering in the world," in Boston on Jan. 4.
