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.
