Western Educational Equity Assistance Center
Goals & Outcomes
Grounded in the university's mission to equitably reshape existing structures and build innovative new collaborations, the team established five goals for building outcomes needed to establish a robust Noyce program.
- Cultivate strong partnerships with local high-needs school districts by conducting STEM teaching needs assessments; preparation and placement for future Noyce fellows and program graduates.
- Align structures of current Math and Science licensure and Noyce programs at MSU Denver to effectively prepare and support scholarship and stipend recipients through clinical field experiences with integrated STEM instruction.
- Develop an undergraduate teacher licensure program for Physics majors; and create a Learning Assistant Program at MSU Denver.
- Develop and test effective recruitment and retention strategies for the program focused on increasing the percentage of underrepresented students majoring in STEM fields that enter the teaching profession.
- The overall outcome of achieving these four goals will be helping to meet the needs of students, faculty, the university, and its K-12 and community partners by establishing a five-year renewable Noyce program.
