STEM education in the School of Education is necessarily an interdisciplinary experience. Our programs involve collaboration across the CU-Boulder campus, in the community, and beyond Colorado.

Some of our primary partners in STEM education include:

CU-Boulder College of Arts & Sciences

The College of Arts and Sciences, founded in 1892, is the University of Colorado's largest college -- offering over 50 majors, minors, and certificate programs. A&S showcases a diverse faculty including Nobel laureates, celebrated authors and artists, as well as a history to cherish and a legacy to build upon. In our aspirations and achievements, we are matched only by the majesty of our mountains.

CU-Boulder Center for STEM Learning

The Center for STEM Learning (CSL) is the result of a 5-year initiative to establish the University of Colorado Boulder as a national hub of STEM education research and reform. CSL has now evolved into a campus center that coordinates and leads:

  • efforts to transform STEM education;
  • discipline-based STEM education research;
  • and STEM teacher preparation (K-20).

Boulder Valley School District (BVSD)

Many of the field placements for our CU-Teach courses are in BVSD classrooms. Through this partnership, students get support from practicing K-12 teachers who model effective, inquiry-based classroom instruction. 

National Math & Science Initiative

The National Math & Science Initiative, Inc. (NMSI) is an innovative, non-profit organization dedicated to expanding programs that have a proven impact on math and science.

UTeach @ Austin

UTeach started at The University of Texas at Austin in 1997 as a new way to prepare secondary science, math and computer science teachers. Its strength lies in the unique collaboration between the Colleges of Natural Sciences and Education
