About the Dana Center

At the Charles A. Dana Center at The University of Texas at Austin, we are passionate about ensuring all students—including those who are Black, Latinx, Native American, or come from low-income backgrounds—have access to excellent math and science education.

From kindergarten through postsecondary, we believe every student deserves the same opportunity to experience the joy of learning math and science that are relevant to their futures and set them on a path toward upward social and economic mobility.

That’s why we work at every level of the educational system—from local K-12 districts and two- and four-year institutions, all the way through statewide education systems and legislative policy.

Every day our staff of more than 70 professionals bring this passion to life, with innovative ideas and research-based best practices in pedagogy, curriculum, instruction, and professional learning. And we do so in a spirit of collaboration, partnership, and innovation, knowing that together, we can make a difference.
