** ^{2}** The California
Mathematics and Science Teaching Program provided fellowships
to more than 200 students attending UCSB, Westmont College, Santa
Barbara
City College, Allan Hancock College, Ventura College and, Oxnard
College
in connection with their work in regional mathematics and science
classrooms.
The principal mission of the program is to encourage students of color
to explore mathematics and science teaching careers and, in the course
of their work, provide junior high and high school students with strong
role models who can encourage them to become mathematically and
scientifically
successful and to continue their studies at the college and university
level. This program is partially supported by the University of
California's
Community Teaching Fellowship Program and by the NSF funded California
Alliance for Minority Participation.

** ^{3}** The Mathematics component Achievement Program
(MAP)
was created in 1988 to promote mathematical achievement among students
of color. MAP now supports over 100 students each quarter at all levels
of undergraduate study. MAP served as the model for programs in
statistics,
biological sciences, chemistry, geography, geology and physics that now
form the core of the CAMP effort at UCSB.

** ^{4}** The goal of the
College Board is "Educational Excellence for All Students."
Established
in 1900, it is a national, nonprofit association of about 3,000
education
organizations committed to achieving this goal. There are three
national
assemblies: Guidance and Admission, Academic Affairs, and College
Scholarship
Service. Among the Board's better know services are the Advanced
Placement
Program and the SAT, PSAT/NMSQT. The principal thrusts of the Board are
programs directed to promoting access and success of students of color,
for example EQUITY 2000 and Pacesetter.

** ^{5}** The American
Mathematical
Society (AMS), founded in 1880 to further mathematical research and
scholarship, has over 30,000 members. Its mission is to promote
mathematical
research, strengthen mathematical education, and foster awareness and
appreciation
of mathematics and its connection to other disciplines and everyday
life.
The Committee on Undergraduate Education advises the Society on issues
concerning undergraduate mathematics programs. The Sloan Foundation has
funded a joint effort of the AMS and the Society for Industrial and
Applied
Mathematics to undertake analysis of employment of PhD's in mathematics
outside academia.

** ^{6}** The California Mathematics Project funds
seventeen
sites in collaborative professional development programs devised to
improve
the quality of mathematics education in California and thereby develop
in all students at all grade levels throughout the state an enhanced
sense
of mathematical power.

** ^{7}** The Mathematicians and Educational Reform Forum
in an alliance of teachers of mathematics and mathematics departments
interested
devoted to the improvement of mathematics education in the United
States.
Dr. Millett serves on the advisory committee to the Departmental
Network,
a confederation of 13 leading mathematics departments.

** ^{8}** The "Partnership" engaged university, community
college, high school, junior high school and elementary school teachers
in work to improve the teaching and learning of mathematics in the
South
Coast area (including Santa Barbara and Ventura Counties). With funding
from the University of California, the participating school districts,
and a grant for the California Eisenhower Grant program, one of the
principal
activities of the Partnership is a summer program that brings
university
and community college students, especially students of color,
interested
in mathematics teaching careers into an intensive two month summer
program.
During this program, participants receive training in the use of new
mathematics
curricula and teaching and assessment strategies, they work with
experienced
teacher partners in summer mathematics programs for underrepresented
students
and they complete and present a capstone project. The 1995 program
supported
more than 20 students.

** ^{9}** The California Coalition for Mathematics and
Science
was an alliance of California's education, public policy, government,
professional,
and business leaders dedicated to a statewide collaborative initiative
seeking the systemic reform of mathematics education and the
mathematical
empowering of all citizens for success in an increasingly technological
world.
