Association of Public and Land-grant Universities
The common core state standards for mathematics and recently released science framework provide an opportunity to improve K-12 science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) education. However, a significant challenge to successful implementation and fulfillment of this potential is having a teacher workforce prepared to teach to these higher standards. APLU's Science and Mathematics Teacher Imperative (SMTI) is convening this panel to discuss how higher education can help meet this challenge.
The Science and Mathematics Teacher Imperative (SMTI) is an initiative of A۰P۰L۰U and the nation’s public research universities to transform middle and high school science, technology, engineering and mathematics education by preparing a new generation of world-class science and mathematics teachers.
Founded in 1887, the Association of Public and Land-grant Universities (A۰P۰L۰U) is an association of public research universities, land-grant institutions, and state university systems. A۰P۰L۰U member campuses enroll more than 3.5 million undergraduate and 1.1 million graduate students, employ more than 645,000 faculty members, and conduct nearly two-thirds of all academic research, totaling more than $34 billion annually. As the nation’s oldest higher education association, A۰P۰L۰U is dedicated to excellence in learning, discovery and engagement. For more information, visit www.aplu.org
