The participation of WUSTL faculty in programs supporting the improvement of STEM education is creating multiple learning communities focused on evidence-based teaching. The effort is also bringing together senior administration, department chairs, and faculty to develop and discuss strategies for increasing faculty engagement in a broad range of programs that are focused on improving student learning in STEM disciplines.
Initial funding for the STEM education initiatives at Washington University was through a four-year grant from the American Association of Universities (AAU). This work continues through the Transformational Initiative for Education in STEM (TIES), which is supported by the Office of the Provost.
