How the MPC Works
The Dana Center utilizes a strategy in which individuals from all levels of the system and from different stakeholder groups collaborate in an effective planning and implementation process. The process has three phases.
In Phase 1, faculty leaders from 2- and 4-year institutions work with policy representatives through a state-level math task force to establish a vision for math pathways in that state. This serves to build urgency and motivate change.
Phase 2 is a brief transition period during which the math task force plans and initiates actions to create the enabling conditions for implementation. Colleges and universities then move towards implementation in Phase 3.
