The UGA Office of STEM Education (OSE) provides support to the university community to boost learning initiatives, recruit more students, and improve student retention in STEM majors. The OSE works with partners to 1) increase the number of K-12 students prepared for and interested in majoring in STEM disciplines in college; 2) increase the success and completion rates of student majoring in STEM disciplines; and 3) increase the number of qualified K-12 STEM teachers.

There may be an opportunity to embed “Citizen Science” data collection projects into your course or research. This approach could be used to scale the number of available research projects for Experiential Learning or add a new component to a lecture class.

We all need to be entrepreneurs – as students, faculty and staff, and alumni we must design our careers, change teaching, and bring products to market. However, just as we’ve worked hard to make STEM more inclusive of our community, UGA innovators—and the people who support them—must ensure that innovation and entrepreneurship are taught and practiced by all!
