Darryl Yong is a Professor of Mathematics at Harvey Mudd College.
How do we increase access to high-quality teaching in schools? What does inclusive, ambitious mathematics teaching look like? What are effective ways of supporting teachers and faculty in enhancing their teaching and learning? These are some questions that motivate his scholarship.
Darryl received his PhD in applied mathematics at the University of Washington. He served as Associate Dean for Diversity at Harvey Mudd College from 2011 to 2016 and then Founding Director of the Claremont Colleges Center for Teaching and Learning from 2016 to 2018.
In 2007, Darryl helped to create Math for America Los Angeles, a non-profit organization dedicated to increasing the number of secondary school mathematics and computer science teacher leaders in the greater Los Angeles Area. That involvement led him to teach in Los Angeles Unified School District while on sabbatical during the 2009-10 academic year. Since 2007, he has also been an instructor for the Secondary School Teacher Program at IAS/Park City Mathematics Institute.
