Welcome to NSEC
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.
NSEC is an organization of campus-based centers and offices that serve as catalysts for educational transformation in STEM. The network allows center leadership, university and college administrators, and state and national policymakers to have a central hub for their communal efforts.
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.
Save the Dates for Network of STEM Education Centers (NSEC) 2020 virtual National Conference, which is June 10-11! Call for Poster Abstracts are due by May 31, 2020.
Mark your calendars as this will be our first virtual conference. You can read more about the conference here.
June 9 2020 Update is here on NSEC supporting the goals of #ShutdownSTEM on June 10.
We know STEM Education Centers play a vital role on campuses in helping disseminate information to STEM faculty. To aid that work, we are compiling resources related to COVID-19 on teaching remotely and responses by the federal agencies to the federal funding of research during the pandemic.
