Susan L. Ganter is Professor of Mathematics and Dean for the College of Arts & Sciences at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University-Worldwide. Her work focuses on the evaluation of innovations in postsecondary science and mathematics curricula, also including articulation issues from K-12 to college education. Student access and success at the postsecondary level are natural components of her work, including the implementation and evaluation of programs designed to improve success rates for underrepresented students. An example is Dr. Ganter’s work as Director (since 1999) for the Curriculum Foundations (CF) Project housed at the Mathematical Association of America (MAA). The CF work has resulted in research about classroom practices in undergraduate mathematics, with a focus on interdisciplinary collaborations that result in the development of courses in both mathematics and the partner disciplines that support the preparation of students for careers in STEM and non-STEM disciplines. Currently, she is PI for a recently-funded $2.64M National Science Foundation (NSF) grant, focused on a national consortium of eleven institutions for the purpose of wider dissemination and implementation of the recommendations from the CF work across numerous disciplines.
