“Being approved by the SOA is monumental because it gives official support to our new program,” said Dr. Caroline Maher-Boulis, associate professor of mathematics at Lee. “It also places us on the SOA’s UCAP interactive map, which shows that in a 200-mile radius we are one of only five schools to offer this type of program.”...

The combination of potential internship and career opportunities and a program designed to give students a strong basis in actuarial science puts Lee in a unique place that will attract students to the program.
