Faculty Excellence: Chirashree Bhattacharya, Mathematics Department
Mathematics Associate Professor Chirashree Bhattacharya is from Ranchi, Bihar, India. She joined the Randolph-Macon faculty in 2003 and says the college has become a home to her. She was attracted to Randolph-Macon because of its unique academic opportunities, such as the Schapiro Undergraduate Research Fellowship, and the close-knit community. At R-MC, she has developed innovative courses that allow her to combine mathematics with her love for classical music.
In this video, Bhattacharya explains how Randolph-Macon offers a world-class education and allows students to grow, explore their areas of interest and maximize their potential.
At R-MC, our strong international education program welcomes talented students from around the world to our Ashland, Virginia campus, located only 150 kilometers from Washington, DC. International students benefit from R-MC's exceptional liberal arts curriculum, opportunities for internships and independent research, and a strong tradition of alumni success.
