Bringing National Recognition to CU Boulder


PresidentObamacitesprogramslikeCUTeach as national models for teacher preparation to address the challenges in teacher and workforcepreparation. CUhostedtheAssociationofPublicand Land-grantUniversities(APLU)ScienceandMath Teacher Imperative's inaugural conference; CU recognized as a national leader. iSTEMContributestoStatewideInitiatives, including revision of state standards in mathematics and science, and leading roles in RacetotheTop/ARRAapplication. We seek to establish CU as a national hub of STEM education and create a Center for STEM education at CU Boulder
