The Chancellor's Office established the Center for the Advancement of Instruction in Quantitative Reasoning (CAIQR) in fall, 2016 as recommended by the Academic Senate of California State University Quantitative Reasoning Task Force (QRTF) Final Report (9/1/16).
Organizational Structure: The Center is housed in the Department of Educator Preparation and Public School Programs. Currently, there is one co-director who oversees the work related to K-12. A second co-director with mathematics/quantitative reasoning expertise will oversee the work related to CSU faculty professional development. Both will report to AVC Grenot-Scheyer. Additionally, there will be two committees: Council of Faculty Liaisons and Advisory Board.
Dr. Zee Cline is the Statewide Director of the California Academic Partnership Program (CAPP). CAPP is an intersegmental program working with the three segments of higher education and the K-12 system. Under Dr. Cline’s leadership, CAPP has launched two grants: the CAPP Demonstration Project, which helps schools build post-secondary partnerships, and College Going Culture Grant, which helps schools develop a college-going culture. CAPP is also responsible for the Math Diagnostic Testing Project, an intersegmental collaborative effort that has been developing diagnostic tests for more than 30 years. Prior to joining the Chancellor’s Office, Dr. Cline was a professor at CSU San Marcos.
Dr. Fred Uy serves both as a Director in the Department of Educator Preparation and Public School Programs and Co-Director for the Center for the Advancement of Instruction in Quantitative Reasoning. Before joining the Office of the Chancellor, Dr. Uy was a Professor of Mathematics Education at Cal State LA and a K-12 mathematics teacher. In this position, he will be responsible in overseeing and increasing the capacity of the department to provide leadership and support to the educator preparation programs on campuses across the CSU. He has contributed to CSU initiatives in secondary school teacher mathematics preparation as a trainer for the EAP in Mathematics and as a leader in the CSU M-TEP. Dr. Uy also has served as a mathematics consultant for school districts and publishers and has conducted numerous professional development trainings in topics like mathematics pedagogy, teaching mathematics to ELs, assessments, Linked Learning, arts integration, and bilingual education.
