We are preparing the next generation of educators, researchers and leaders to create and implement solutions that improve classrooms and communities.
Guiding Student Scientists
We are working with students and training them as ecological monitors in long-term studies as they collect data on species type, length and mass.
Learning and Homework
We are researching the value of balancing homework with real life experiences as means of learning, while creating programs to engage Pre-K students in math.
Our team is redesigning STEM education to improve outcomes, expand opportunities for underrepresented minorities and create pathways for successful careers.
Women in STEM
The Women in STEM Initiative aims to not only strengthen the current network of female students and faculty in STEM but also bring new members through outreach and other projects.
Students Using evidence-based peer learning with student learning assistants, our math labs have an increased student passing rate and resulted in impressive research.
