This presentation is from the 4th National Mathematics Summit held Monday June 14 & Tuesday, June 15, 2021

Community colleges have long been lauded as democratizing institutions that broaden participation through an open door mission. However, the open door does not equate to open access. Even as mathematics can be a gateway to greater educational, economic, and social mobility, little is known about the dimensions of equity for teaching and learning math, namely racial equity in community college contexts. This presentation will touch on broad definitions of equity and how community colleges as a context and the field of mathematics wrestle with the tensions between access, identity, opportunities and achievement in fostering equitable student experiences and outcomes. Zamani-Gallaher will highlight the equity imperative for the community college enterprise requires greater intentionality of race-critical analyses in disrupting intersectional inequities in mathematics.
