He coordinates the production and dissemination of external communications related to the Dana Center Mathematics Pathways (formerly the New Mathways Project), an initiative to modernize entry-level college mathematics programs through working with states and colleges. Erich mobilizes and guides high-priority communication projects, including the writing, editing, and designing process for a wide range of purposes and audiences. He curates content for social media channels and general communications, ensuring message continuity, design, and tone across the portfolio.
