San Antonio, Texas – El Paso Community College (EPCC) was named 2017 Math Pathways Overall Exemplar-College of the Year by Texas Pathways.
EPCC representatives accepted the award for the college and its math faculty at the Texas Pathways Institute in San Antonio, Texas.
EPCC participates in a joint partnership with the Charles A. Dana Center at the University of Texas-Austin and The Texas Association of Community Colleges to provide mathematics pathways.
Mathematics Pathways is a systemic approach to accelerate student success and completion. As a collaborative effort between deans, math faculty, counselors and advisors, tutoring and Institutional Research since Fall 2013, Mathematics Pathways uses research-based practices to provide mathematics courses with relevant and challenging content aligned to specific fields of study.
“EPCC students experience greater success rates in Mathematics Pathways courses,” Lucy H. Michal EPCC Research Projects Assistant said. “Students accelerate successfully to and through their mathematics courses required to complete their programs of study.”
Evidence shows higher completion rates in developmental education and Gateway Math courses than those in traditional developmental courses at EPCC and all Texas community colleges.
EPCC drives student success by providing academic programs and support services that are clear pathways to skill development
