The American Mathematical Society honored UCLA's math department and its "first-rate faculty of internationally recognized mathematicians" with the 2007 Award for an Exemplary Program or Achievement in a Mathematics Department.

UCLA's department is "an outstanding model of all that a mathematics department can be," the society declared, adding that "UCLA has become one of the biggest pipelines to mathematical careers in the United States."

More than 1,000 scholars a year participate in programs that bring together mathematicians and scientists from the fields of biology, the physical sciences, medicine, engineering and others, as well as from industry and national laboratories.
