At Western Michigan University, Calculus 1 (MATH 1220) had low student success rates. After issues were identified, a team of instructors was assigned to collaboratively coordinate the course. In this case study, we describe the evolution of the coordination, effects on instructors of this course, effects on student success in this course, and effects on other courses. Changes implemented make access to calculus education more equitable.
