 Welcome to the IUSE Program Review Panel Meeting

A well-prepared, innovative science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) workforce is crucial to the Nation's health and economy. Indeed, recent policy actions and reports have drawn attention to the opportunities and challenges inherent in increasing the number of highly qualified STEM graduates, including STEM teachers. Priorities include educating students to be leaders and innovators in emerging and rapidly changing STEM fields as well as educating a scientifically literate populace; both of these priorities depend on the nature and quality of the undergraduate education experience. In addressing these STEM challenges and priorities, the National Science Foundation invests in research-based and research-generating approaches to understanding STEM learning; to designing, testing, and studying curricular change; to wide dissemination and implementation of best practices; and to broadening participation of individuals and institutions in STEM fields. The goals of these investments include: increasing student retention in STEM, to prepare students well to participate in science for tomorrow, and to improve students' STEM learning outcomes.

This meeting is convened for the purpose of discussing Improving Undergraduate STEM Education (IUSE) Program proposals, submitted in response to IUSE Program Description PD 14-7513 with a February 19, 2014 target date. The meeting will open with an orientation session at 8:30 AM on Tuesday April 22, 2014 and will adjourn at approximately 2:00 PM on Thursday, April 23, 2014.
