The Dana Center works nationally to mobilize the field of higher education around math pathways. This thought leadership builds momentum for state and level work, which the Dana Center organizes around a robust set of tools and services. This approach can be viewed through the lens of interinstitutional andintrainstitutional work.
Hear about the experiences of different Temple College stakeholders as they describe their cross-institutional coordination of DCMP implementation.
Interinstitutional: Enabling implementation at scale requires building momentum and legitimacy among a large cohort of institutions. This momentum can then be used to address state and regional challenges. The Dana Center provides training, models, and tools to help state and local leaders organize these efforts.
Intrainstitutional: It is critical that colleges understand that implementing math pathways at scale requires cross-institutional coordination and change. Math faculty must lead the work, but they must be supported by and collaborate with administrators, advisors, institutional researchers, student support services, and client disciplines. The Dana Center addresses this challenge through a robust suite of tools, resources, and technical assistance services that can be used to support work at the state, regional, institutional, and classroom level.
