Our Mission and Vision
The purpose of the CU-Boulder Center for STEM Learning is to improve science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) learning at the University of Colorado Boulder, and to serve as a state, national, and international resource for such efforts. Our vision for achieving this mission is to maintain an infrastructure of institutional support in order to transform STEM education, support education research within STEM fields and departments, and promote K20 faculty recruitment, preparation, and professional development, and to facilitate change in STEM education by integrating an interdisciplinary community of scholars, promoting, sustaining, and evaluating existing reform efforts, sponsoring new programs, advocating for diversity and access, influencing relevant policy, fundraising, and communicating with the public.
