Director's Message and Vision
CESAME is a major interdisciplinary STEM education center on the campus and has established a wide range of academic year and summer activities for faculty, graduate students, undergraduates and K-12 students and teachers. CESAME’s mission is to provide comprehensive, high-quality STEM education that advances knowledge in the field. We work collaboratively across all levels of the educational spectrum and seek to recognize, attract, nurture and develop talent. We expect that our faculty and the graduates of our programs will be leaders in the STEM education field through their production of new knowledge; the publication of their research in the leading journals; their presentations at state, national and international conferences and their influence upon key STEM policy initiatives. We believe that a sustained commitment to excellence in STEM education is imperative for the university and the nation.
