Partners Meeting

University of Miami
Monday, April 1, 2019

TPSE Math aims to support the efforts of organizations working to effect change in post-secondary mathematics education. By understanding where priorities overlap and where they differ, what research and data are available and what additional information is needed, what innovations have been implemented and merit scaling up, and what additional resources are needed, TPSE is committed to enhancing the capacity of each partner to do its own work more effectively in pursuit of the shared goal of stronger and more relevant education in mathematics in US colleges and universities.

This event is made possible by a grant from Carnegie Corporation of New York and by the generosity of our host, the University of Miami.
