Mary O'Neill

Mary B. O’Neill, former director of Hamilton’s Quantitative and Symbolic Reasoning (QSR) Center, was a co-editor of QMaSC: A Handbook for Directors of Quantitative and Mathematics Support Centers, published recently by the University of Florida Scholars Commons. The handbook, co-edited with Michael Schuckers of St. Lawrence University and Grace Coulombe of Bates College, is a resource for those who lead, manage or direct Quantitative and Mathematics Support Centers (QMaSC).

The book focuses on topics that include how to manage a center, interact with other entities on campus, train and build a staff, assess the center and start a new center. 

Each chapter was written by an experienced center director recognizing the diversity of QMaSCs across the country. Additionally, the book features 10 case studies authored by directors representing a range of centers, from community colleges to liberal arts colleges to large research institutions.

This work was funded through a grant from the National Science Foundation, which supported a national workshop of contributors in Hartford, Conn., in 2013.

O’Neill was the director of the QSR Center from 1994 to 2013.
