The primary aim of the Chautauqua program, supported by the National Science Foundation, is to enable undergraduate teachers in the sciences to keep current and relevant. The program provides an annual series of workshops in which scholars at the forefront of various sciences and engineering have the opportunity to meet for several days with undergraduate science teachers. These workshops provide an opportunity for invited scholars to communicate new knowledge, concepts, and techniques directly to college teachers in ways that are immediately beneficial to their teaching. Designed to have an impact on the quality of undergraduate programs in two-and four-year institutions, the program is an essential element in attracting and maintaining an adequate supply of graduates in science, mathematics, and engineering.

In 1998, 85 different courses are being offered through the Chautauqua program. Most courses are offered at the field centers or satellite centers listed below. Additional information about the specific courses being offered and space availability can be obtained on the World Wide Web at or by consulting the contact listed.
