The Intercollegiate Biomathematics Alliance (IBA) is a consortium created to promote research and education in biomathematics. The IBA strives to bring together institutions both academic and non-academic to build a collaborative academic community in the pursuit of advancing biomathematics, ecology, and related areas for the researchers, educators of the mathematical and biological sciences, and active scholars. In doing so, the IBA provide a wide range of expertise, resources, and opportunities that are only available when we work together as a community.

Students enrolled at IBA member institutions also enjoy additional benefits that would not otherwise be available. The IBA offers undergraduate research workshops, a graduate curriculum, cross-institutional research opportunities for graduate students, and an expanded selection of courses thanks to the collaborative community of departments of the IBA family.
