  • Our Mission

    Quantitative reasoning is the analysis of real-world data, using mathematical tools and critical thinking to solve problems drawn from a variety of disciplines. Since the analysis of real-world problems is an integral part of a Jesuit, liberal arts education, Le Moyne’s Quantitative Reasoning Center provides a dynamic environment that empowers students, faculty, and community members to deepen their understanding of quantitative reasoning and supports its use in a wide range of critical thinking to solve problems from a variety of disciplines.

    The Quantitative Reasoning Center strives to:
    • Advance student learning by providing resources that address diverse learning styles and needs;
    • Foster collaboration and communication by providing a learning environment that encourages individuals to work together to apply their knowledge of quantitative reasoning;
    • Support both faculty and student educators by promoting research based pedagogical methods that enhance quantitative learning; and
    • Extend the Jesuit mission of service by maintaining ongoing dialogue with area partners to understand and support the quantitative needs of the community.

    Emily Lawless
    QRC 109
    Noreen Reale Falcone Library

    B.S. Mathematics and Philosophy, University of Scranton
    M.S. Mathematics, Syracuse University

    Emily is excited to be working in an environment where she can assist in demystifying quantitative reasoning subjects. She is drawn to mathematics because problems have concrete answers, but often creative avenues to arrive at those solutions. Through what she refers to as “math therapy,” Emily is committed to resolving some of the common anxieties and misconceptions associated with STEM subjects, and is thankful to be working in an environment where she can do so by working with students individually. Before coming to Le Moyne, Emily taught mathematics for eight years at Mohawk Valley Community College.  One of the best parts about her role as the QRC Director is that she gets to to teach math courses at Le Moyne—allowing her to work with students both in and out of the classroom.
