Jane Reinke played a key role in helping three separate colleges implement Statway. Reaching common course numbers, titles, and credits across the three institutions allowed for a streamlined approach to gain articulation agreements for all of the major state universities as well as multiple private colleges and universities for all three institutions. Jane earned a Masters in Pathology from Indiana University and her passion continues to be providing support for disadvantaged students to overcome their barriers to be successful.

Her experience speaks to what it takes to implement large-scale systemic reform with the Carnegie Math Pathways. Margo earned a Ph.D. in workforce development and education from the University of Minnesota. Her research interests include student persistence and retention.

Kelly Kohlmetz teaches Quantway and worked to scale it at her institution on the administrative front. Her innovation of implementing Quantway “teaching assistants” with veteran Pathways students is now being shared with the Network at large, and speaks to the utility of knowledge sharing in a Network approach. Her doctoral dissertation centered on a comparison of teaching methods in developmental mathematics. She has recently been involved in the piloting/implementation of the new Quantway Virtual courses.
Having formerly worked for SJSU, Stephen Branz provides a unique perspective on implementing Statway at a four-year university, as well as navigating articulation between community colleges and 4-year universities. During his time at San Jose, Stephen conducted a longitudinal study on the positive outcomes for students post-Statway at his institution. His background includes chemical education research focused on undergraduate curriculum and pedagogy.
