Network of STEM Education Centers (NSEC)

Addressing calls from the White House (Olson & Riordan, 2012) and National Academies (Singer et al., 2012) for multi-institutional approaches to transform undergraduate STEM education, we are building a national network of STEM Education Centers. These centers serve as the campus hub for improving the STEM learning experience for students, broadening participation in STEM, understanding teaching and learning, broadening the impact of campus research, and supporting national and regional scale improvement in STEM education.
