The mission of the CCMIC is to advance fundamental knowledge and application of all areas of computational mathematics through basic and collaborative research, to oversee the undergraduate program in Computational Mathematics, and to develop graduate plans in this area. Research relationships collaborative with the public and private sectors are encouraged.

The CCMIC sponsors a seminar series in computational mathematics, provides advice and guidance to both graduate and undergraduate students in computational mathematics, promotes collaboration with people who work in areas of application of computational mathematics, and facilitates the development of research relationships.

Activities are publicized across campus, and all faculty members with interests and expertise in computational mathematics are eligible to be members of the CCMIC.
