Campus Centers in STEM Education

STEM education centers and related offices are the hub of campus-based efforts leading the transformation of undergraduate STEM education at their institutions and beyond. While there is large variety in the structure and identity of STEM education efforts, they all have common functions and goals.

STEM Education Center Toolkit

The Toolkit is a mechanism for spreading the wealth of knowledge and expertise about STEM Education around the community. It explores important issues for STEM Education Centers and provides examples of how members of the community have addressed those concerns. Learn more and add your own experience to the collection.

News & Jobs

  • Doctoral Assistantship in Undergraduate STEM Teaching and Learning
    The School of Natural Resources (UNL) and Department of Biology (UNO) seek a Ph.D. candidate to participate in grant-funded projects to investigate i.) undergraduate student learning outcomes in STEM, and ii.) design and assess professional development opportunities for undergraduate STEM instructors (e.g., faculty and learning assistants at the undergraduate and master's level).
  • Postdoctoral Level Position in Institutional Transformation through teaching evaluation
    We seek to fill a postdoctoral-level position to lead an innovative approach to teaching evaluation across a variety of departments at the University of Colorado Boulder.
  • Building a STEM DBER Alliance
    As part of NSEC's funded Research Action Cluster and in conjunction with AAAS, we held a meeting of discipline-based education researchers (DBER) in November 2016. The purpose is to build a cross-DBER community of scholars to advance and disseminate knowledge and theory that promote learning and success for all students across STEM fields. At its core, this STEM DBER community will focus on undergraduate learning and teaching at 2- and 4-year colleges and universities, with links to K-12 and graduate education. STEM is broadly defined to include social and behavioral sciences.
  • Study Explores How Universities Deploy Faculty and Link to Professors' Pay
    Inside Higher Ed - A common criticism of the faculty reward system is that it tends to value research over teaching. A just-released working paper from the National Bureau of Economic Research offers new evidence in support of that contention, suggesting that the number of students a professor teaches has relatively little to do with their compensation.
