Eliminating Racial and Income Inequities in Postsecondary Math Outcomes: Interventions Across Time

Date and Time: November 10, 2021 3:15–4:00 PM
Location: Washington, DC
Venue: Capital Hilton

This panel session focused on strategies to address specific obstacles that low-income, Black, Hispanic and indigenous students face that contribute to inequitable rates of performance in postsecondary math. This session also focused on various strategies intended to create a more equitable experience for students at three time points: (1) when a student is still enrolled in high school, (2) when a student applies for college, and (3) when a student begins taking courses at the college. The presentations in this session drew on research findings and practical experience to describe the design and implementation of the strategies at each time point. After several brief presentations, the presenters engaged in a facilitated discussion to answer questions from the audience. This session was interactive so that participants can leave this session not only with an understanding of obstacles facing underserved students across their academic careers, but also with an understanding of strategies that colleges, systems, and practitioners can adopt to help address these obstacles.
