Recommendations for Improving Math Placement and Promoting Students’ Success in STEM

To ensure that community college and four-year college students interested in STEM jobs enter and complete the math courses they need, Jobs for the FutureThe Charles A. Dana Center at The University of Texas at Austin, and Achieving the Dream have released a Call to Action for states and colleges to revise their math placement policies, processes, and supports.

The Call to Action was created based on the nation needing more students prepared for STEM jobs, particularly low-income students and students of color, who remain highly underrepresented in STEM professions. The goal of the Call to Action is to ensure that college placement policies and processes work to increase student success in mathematics and attainment of STEM credentials.
