Connecting Centers for Teaching and Learning and STEM Education Centers

New Report!

As STEM Education Centers (SECs) grow in prominence on college campuses across the country, a new report details how universities can pair the work of these critical hubs aimed at improving teaching and student success in STEM fields with their Centers for Teaching and Learning (CTLs). The Collaborating at the Centers report presents key recommendations on ways these two distinct types of campus-based centers can work more closely to further national STEM education improvement efforts.
