Mission
Mathematics is undoubtedly essential for natural, life and social sciences. Therefore, the main mission of the Mathematics Department is to offer high quality instruction and research to all its undergraduate and graduate students. Thus, preparing them to become life-long learners and responsible citizens. In addition, the department offers consultations in Statistics and Applied Mathematics to other faculty and graduate students as well as to the community at large. The department strives not only to teach the main ideas and methods of mathematics but also to build up student's mathematical reasoning and analytical skills in a friendly and comfortable environment. As the department offers mathematics courses to students of other degree programs, our mission in this regard, is to make sure that these courses are taught at high standards and meet the needs of these programs. For its undergraduate and graduate students (majoring in Mathematics, Statistics and Actuarial Science), the department's mission is to provide them with rigorous training that enables them to pursue graduate studies or work in jobs that require high mathematical skills in industry and academia.

Vision
The Mathematics Department at the University of Jordan aspires to be recognized nationally and internationally for excellence and distinction. Major and non-major Mathematics students in this department will receive outstanding preparation for graduate studies or professional careers or for entry to the workforce in industry or academia, through innovative high quality instruction from a team of distinguished faculty in up-to-date computer labs . The department aspires, with its well-known experienced faculty, to be a valuable and expert resource of consultation for the community and for businesses and institutions. The department also recognizes the role of research in the development of its faculty members and graduate students. Therefore, the Department plans to hold conferences, workshops and seminars on regular basis. The department also encourages and funds its faculty to participate in international specialized conferences and workshops
