In today’s information economy, the demand for people with strong mathematical skills continues to grow. Yet, the educational experiences students encounter have not kept pace with the diverse ways mathematics is now used. This diversification calls for new mathematics pathways to support higher education students in the attainment of postsecondary degrees and certificates.

The Dana Center’s Higher Education team works every day to reduce the barriers to college and university by creating more seamless transitions from high school to—and through—gateway mathematics courses at two- and four-year institutions. This includes work across our Dana Center Mathematics Pathways initiative, support and professional learning services, policy development, and curricular resources.
