Milo Schield and Marc Isaacson, Business Administration, were elected President and Secretary-Treasurer, respectively, of the National Numeracy Network (NNN). The NNN’s mission is to increase numeracy: the skills needed by citizens and decision-makers to read and evaluate the quantitative informtion they receive everyday.

The NNN does this by holding annual meetings, by publishing “Numeracy” (an open-source, no-cost, peer-reviewed journal), by conducting teacher-training workshops and by coordinating math learning centers. The 2019 Annual Meeting was held in Austin, Texas and sponsored by the Charles A. Dana Center.

Institutional sponsors of the NNN include the Mathematical Association of America (MAA), the American Statistical Association (ASA), and the Association of American Colleges and Universities (AAC&U).
