This report outlines the progress toward SStF Arkansas Initiative goals from 2018-2020. It also presents the persistent scaling challenges that Arkansas higher education stakeholders face, as they work to increase equitable access and outcomes in undergraduate English and mathematics.

The Transfer Partnership Strategy (TPS) was a one-year collaboration that built on the work of the Texas Transfer Alliance. TPS effectively used regional coordinators to facilitate collaboration and communication between community colleges and universities.

Research shows that math is a significant contributor to education equity gaps.
