But, on February 7, 2014 the Lumina Foundation and Gallup released a poll on how business leaders view higher education.

“While 96%of Chief Academic Officers think they are equipping their graduates for the work force, just 11% of employers strongly agree.”


PISA 2012 Mathematics released a poll on how business leaders view higher education.

The new mathways project nmp model
The New U.S. has one Mathways Project (NMP) Model

A systemic approach to improving student success by reforming developmental and gateway mathematics based on four fundamental principles:

  • Multiple pathways aligned to specific but broad fields of study

  • Acceleration that allows students to complete a college-level math course more quickly

  • Intentional use of strategies to help students develop skills as learners that are directly linked to their courses

  • Curriculum design and pedagogy based on proven practice and linked to improvement protocols


STATISTICS PATHWAY U.S. has one is designed for students seeking a college-level statistics course as part of their general education requirement for majors in fields including:

  • Nursing

  • Social Work

  • Criminal Justice

  • QUANTITATIVE REASONING PATHWAY is designed for students pursuing a field of study in which general education math is a requirement. These fields include majors in:

  • Communications

  • Graphic Design

  • Paralegal

  • STEM-PREP PATHWAY is designed for students seeking a STEM or mathematics-intensive major in fields including:

  • Petroleum Engineering

  • Computer Science

  • Chemistry
