Terrie Christine "Chris" Stevens is an American mathematician whose research concerns topological groups, the history of mathematics, and mathematics education. She is also known as the co-founder of Project NExT, a mentorship program for recent doctorates in mathematics, which she directed from 1994 until 2009.
Stevens graduated from Smith College in 1970, and completed her doctorate in 1978 at Harvard University under the supervision of Andrew M. Gleason. She held teaching positions at the University of Massachusetts Lowell, at Mount Holyoke College and at Arkansas State University before joining Saint Louis University, where for 25 years she was a professor of mathematics and computer science. She was also a Congressional Science Fellow assisting congressman Theodore S. Weiss in 1984–1985, and was a program officer at the National Science Foundation in 1987–1989. After retiring from SLU, she became Associate Executive Director for Meetings and Professional Services of the American Mathematical Society.
In 2004 Stevens won the Gung and Hu Award for Distinguished Service to Mathematics of the Mathematical Association of America for her work on Project NExT. In 2010 Stevens was awarded the Smith College Medal by her alma mater. In 2012, she became one of the inaugural fellows of the American Mathematical Society. She was the 2015 winner of the Louise Hay Award of the Association for Women in Mathematics.
