Crossing Signals: The Webinar

On September 17, join Just Equations for a discussion of our recent report, Crossing Signals: What College Websites Tell Students about Taking Mathematics.

Traditional mathematics requirements too often serve as gatekeepers that can prohibit, or inhibit, students from progressing in their education. Changing the architecture of math opportunity is critical to advancing equity in education.

Recent postsecondary reforms have been designed to do just that by modernizing mathematics offerings and accelerating students’ progress toward degrees. But Crossing Signals found that college websites are doing only a middling job of directing students toward up-to-date options and supporting optimal decision-making. With the vast majority of students currently accessing education in a distance mode, accurate websites are more important than ever to support students’ success in choosing and completing courses.

Report authors Pamela Burdman and Rogéair Purnell will share the findings and talk with panelists Toros Berberyan (Citrus College), Michael O’Sullivan (SDSU), and Mónica Henestroza (Office of California Assembly Speaker), about what colleges and universities can do to better support students.
