Abstract: We will facilitate a discussion of the program led by the Oklahoma State Regents for Higher Education to enhance student learning and success in mathematics across Oklahoma. We will discuss the structures of Math Pathways (to Completion) and Corequisite Instruction (at Scale) that are being implemented at all public institutions of higher education across Oklahoma, taking a closer look at these structural changes at OSU. While these structural changes are not easy, they are fairly straightforward and from them we are seeing measurable successes. However, a consequence of these changes and the need to address the Task Force Goals for enhanced student engagement, increased applications of mathematics and support for academic success skills dictate necessary classroom instructional changes that will require a shift in departmental culture and faculty and advisor professional development. The newly funded Mathematics Inquiry Project is a statewide program to address these challenging changes.
