The Math Pipeline Readiness (M-PReP) Project (2017-2021)
The Math Pipeline Readiness Project (M-PReP) was a four-year longitudinal action research project designed to increase college graduation rates by (1) improving math readiness rates through the vertical alignment of math courses from grade 9 – college calculus, and (2) supporting high school seniors in the development of a college transition plan (CTP). The project used supported dual enrollment courses to bridge the high school and college math programs. College Bridge facilitated intersegmental teams of math faculty, counselors, advisors, and administrators to engage in the school transformation project. The project paired urban partnerships with CSUs in Los Angeles County and rural partnerships with CCCs in California’s rural Central Valley.

The South Los Angeles Math (SLAM) Project (2013-2016)
The SLAM Project was a three-year action-research study to test a supported dual-enrollment statistics class as a lever to increase college access and success for underrepresented students. The strategy was to bridge the high school and university curriculum and leverage the students’ senior year of high school as a catalyst for college success. Students who successfully completed MATH109 (Quantitative Reasoning with Statistics) earned general education college math credit and satisfied all remediation requirements at any of the CSU’s 23 campuses.
