Center for Leadership in STEM Education

Reporting: Rabbit Zielke

The University of Tennessee at Chattanooga is working to help meet President Obama’s goal of 100,000 new science, technology, engineering and mathematics teachers over the next decade through the Center for Leadership in STEM Education.  The Center works through the UTeaChattanooga program to encourage science and mathematics majors at the university to become teachers in the k-12 system.  The primary focus of the student is on the STEM content areas with the UTeaChattanooga program providing additional courses in education and classroom management.

Partially funded through Race to the Top, this program emulates a successful project started by the University of Texas at Austin in 1997.  The University of Tennessee at Chattanooga is one of 21 colleges across the nation implementing this innovative approach to developing new educators.
