Get to Know the Dana Center

The demand for people with strong mathematical and science skills has been steadily growing. Yet, too often, the education students receive today has not kept pace with the diverse ways mathematics and science are used in an ever-changing world.

That’s why the Charles A. Dana Center at The University of Texas at Austin works to dismantle barriers in education systems to ensure all students—especially those from diverse backgrounds—have equitable access to an excellent education.

Our team of passionate professionals works across the education spectrum—from developing and delivering innovative curriculum and professional learning to catalyzing the evolution of systems, structures, and policies.

Our work supports educators, administrators, and policymakers in creating seamless transitions throughout the K–16 system for all students, especially the underserved.
