Implementing

Putting the plan into action

The next stage, Implementing, is about engaging in activities outlined in the implementation plan with oversight from the leadership team. The normative practices that emerge from the plan carry out the institution’s goals of students’ taking and completing their first college-level mathematics course for their programs of study within one year. This is no small feat, as transformative change will require myriad changes across the institution. Consistent communication is necessary for faculty, staff, and students to ensure that clear guidance is provided.

The level of involvement from diverse stakeholder groups across the institution is outlined in the chart. Use this information to support implementation activity in Stage 3.
