MISSION To promote excellence in undergraduate science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) education for all students. GOALS & STRATEGIES The Division accomplishes its mission through the following goals and strategies: Goals : Provide Leadership Strategies - Promote cutting-edge efforts, risk-taking, and continuous innovation in developing new practices and ideas. - Help shape national priorities to further educational innovation and research. - Direct efforts to increase the diversity of STEM communities. Goals : Support Curriculum Development Strategies - Stimulate and support research on learning. - Promote development of exemplary materials and strategies for education. - Support model assessment programs and practices. - Effect broad dissemination of effective pedagogy and materials. - Enable long-term sustainability of effective activities. Goals : Prepare the Workforce Strategies - Promote technological, quantitative, and scientific literacy. - Support an increase in diversity, size, and quality of the next generation of STEM professionals who enter the workforce with two- or four-year degrees or who continue their studies in graduate and professional schools. - Invest in the nation's future K-12 teacher workforce. - Fund research to evaluate and improve workforce initiatives. Goals : Foster Connections Strategies - Facilitate communication across disciplinary boundaries. - Foster connections between all educational levels from K-12 through graduate school and between academia, industry, and professional societies. - Encourage faculty to combine teaching and discipline-based research. - Collaborate with research communities and with NSF research directorates. DUE's current programs, which are described in the documents on this Web site, constitute a comprehensive approach to strengthening STEM education at two- and four-year colleges and universities by improving curricula, instruction, laboratories, infrastructure, assessment, diversity of students and faculty, and collaborations. These programs encompass most of the activities supported by the Division; however, additional ideas and mechanisms will be considered by DUE staff at any time.
