Workshop 2013: Creating a National Network of STEM Education Centers

During the summer of 2013, we invited STEM Education Centers to join the national discussion and fill out a survey. We now have more than 50 profiles of centers and programs on this website; please visit our center profiles page.

If you did not participate earlier this summer, but would like to now,

  1. Center directors can join our email list by contacting Kacy Redd.
  2. Complete the center profile survey.

Workshop participants were notified of their selection on August 9. The workshop will be held in St. Louis on September 15-16.

This workshop for current leaders of STEM Education Centers will build on the survey results gathered this summer to enable:

  • Sharing of available evidence and best practices about the impacts of centers on STEM undergraduate teaching and learning
  • New understanding of the national landscape of STEM Education Centers
  • A plan for enhanced communication among STEM Centers nation wide, perhaps including a national conference.
