MAA and CBMS have authored a joint statement to the House Committee on Education as the committee conducts its hearing in preparation for the reauthorization of the Higher Education Act.
Improving Student Outcomes in Higher Education Mathematics
Joint statement from the Mathematical Association of America and the Conference Board of the Mathematical Sciences
The mathematical sciences community has implemented and studied new placement schemes and introductory curricula, together with student support systems, that are showing success at improving student success in postsecondary mathematics. Fully scaling such efforts in ways that expand this success will require further study to understand their critical components, as well as investments in support structures and faculty professional development. We believe that investments in such efforts, through the re-authorization of the HEA, will further the shared goal of improving student outcomes for our diverse student population.
