Areas of Expertise

Pure Mathematics,


Dr. Deanna Haunsperger is a professor of mathematics at Carleton College in Minnesota. Since her own undergraduate days at a small liberal arts college in Iowa, Deanna has been interested in increasing the number of students who pursue advanced degrees in mathematics. That passion has guided her as a former co-editor for Math Horizons (the Mathematical Association of Americas magazine for undergraduates) and as co-founder and co-director of Carleton's Summer Mathematics Program for Women (a successful, intensive four-week summer program to encourage talented undergraduate women to pursue advanced degrees in the mathematical sciences). She has chaired the MAAs Strategic Planning Committee on Students and the Council on Outreach. Currently Deanna is President-Elect of the MAA. Deanna is married to fellow mathematician Steve Kennedy, and together they have two grown children.
