Thomas M. Kieft
Associate Professor, Mathematics
Lake-Sumter State College
Statement:  Continuous improvement efforts to ensure student success require thoughtful and courageous analysis of students’ outcome data. In an effort to respond to students’ low success rates in math gatekeeper courses, a new innovative initiative was designed by the Mathematics Department and PIE Office to improve at-risk high school and college students’ math performance outcomes. This initiative received a five-year $2.9 million award to assist with implementation. This is the largest single grant in the college’s history.
