Putting the plan into action

The next stage, Implementing, is about engaging in activities outlined in the implementation plan with oversight from the leadership team. The normative practices that emerge from the plan carry out the institution’s goals of having students complete their first college-level mathematics course for their programs of study within one year. This is no small feat, as transformative change will require myriad changes across the institution. Consistent communication is necessary for faculty, staff, and students to ensure that clear guidance is provided.

Institutional stakeholder involvement ranges across the various steps in Stage 3. Look for stakeholder-relevant icons that identify high-level engagement.

Institutional Stakeholder Groups Involved in Stage 3 Essential Actions and Steps
