About the Central Valley Math Pathways Task Force

The Central Valley Higher Education Consortium (CVHEC), in collaboration with the Charles A Dana Center of University of Texas, Austin (Dana Center) launched an initiative to improve students’ success and completion rates in mathematics at colleges and universities in California’s Central Valley. Faculty from participating institutions formed the Central Valley Math Pathways Task Force (Task Force) in fall of 2017. The Task Force developed their mission, goal and objectives statements to inform recommended solutions to increase Central Valley Math Completion rates. The Task Force has met over the past year to work toward this mission.

Central Valley Math Pathways Task Force Mission and Goal Statement

The mission and goal of the Central Valley Math Pathways Task Force is to raise student completion rates at Central Valley colleges and universities by redesigning and creating pathways in transfer level mathematics, aligned with students’ programs of study, that provide clear direction for completing math courses in a timely manner.

Central Valley Math Pathways Task Force

The Task Force includes the following CVHEC member institutions: Bakersfield College; Cero Coso College; Clovis Community College; College of the Sequoias; Columbia College; CSU, Bakersfield; CSU, Fresno; CSU, Stanislaus; Fresno City College; Fresno Pacific University; Merced College; Modesto Junior College; Porterville College; Oxnard College (not a CVHEC member); Reedley College; San Joaquin Delta College; Taft College; West Hills College Coalinga; West Hills College Lemoore; and UCMerced.
