STEM Education

Catherine Riegle-Crumb



Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) play an increasingly important role in addressing critical needs of society and generating innovation that drives the global economy. The STEM Education faculty is committed to providing equitable access to STEM careers and literacy through innovative and socially responsive research, teaching, and teacher preparation informed by the learning sciences. We prepare elementary teachers through the K-6 certification program and secondary teachers through the nationally recognized UTeach program. Our graduate students return to the classroom and educational organizations in leadership roles, and go on to make major contributions in STEM education research and postsecondary teaching.
