Center Roles in Undergraduate STEM Education: A Guide for Self-Evaluation

PDF of presentation is here.

We are excited to share the Center Roles in Undergraduate STEM Education: A Guide for Self-Evaluation with the NSEC community! This publication provides a guide for STEM Education Centers (SECs) and Centers for Teaching and Learning (CTLs) to carry out a self-assessment process focusing on their roles in undergraduate STEM education. The guide and The Model for Center Practices in Undergraduate STEM Education developed and authored by Dr. Deborah Carlisle, is informed by research carried out at the University of Massachusetts Amherst, as part of an APLU and NSF-funded project for NSEC by Dr. Gabriela C. Weaver and Dr. Deborah L. Carlisle. As part of the culmination of this research, we offer this guide to support the NSEC community, and the center community broadly, in their mission to improve undergraduate education.
