Learn more about our research on Centers

The intent of our research is to inform the community about the ways in which Centers (STEM Education Centers, SECs, and Centers for Teaching and Learning, CTLs) support undergraduate STEM education on their campuses. Our research examines the development of individual centers, their functional and structural features, focusing on current areas of emphasis and impact, as situated within their institutional contexts. To accomplish this, we gathered data across organizational levels seeking to understand the roles of Centers from varied perspectives: through STEM faculty and department chairs engaged with the Center, from the director and staff of the Center, as well as the perceived value of the Center by the upper administration. We also sought to identify the ways in which centers work together on their campuses to sustain and scale initiatives.
