Sponsors and Exhibitors

Influence the future of STEM education by sponsoring the 2023 UTeach STEM Educators Conference. 

25 years | 50 universities | 7,675 graduates 

Over the last decade, the total number of STEM teachers prepared across the country has been dropping. In the wake of the pandemic, teachers are retiring early and resigning in such numbers that shortages are beginning to affect students from every community, but are disproportionally affecting students in marginalized groups. 

This is happening while the demand for a STEM-savvy workforce continues to grow. Where will that workforce come from if students don’t have qualified STEM teachers in the classroom? 

This needs to become a moment of renewed attention to preparing teachers and supporting their success. 

The UTeach STEM Educators Conference is the yearly incubator for connection, innovation, and rededication for several segments of the STEM teacher preparation pipeline: university faculty and staff from 50 UTeach programs, UTeach alumni teaching and leading in K–12 schools and districts, UTeach students, and higher education leaders. 

Your sponsorship will promote the opportunity for us to innovate, learn lessons, and collaborate on teacher preparation and support. High-quality educator development and support has never been more consequential. The UTeach program has been preparing STEM teachers for 25 years and is recognized as a premier STEM teacher preparation model in the country. 

Take this opportunity to support our work as a sponsor or exhibitor for the UTeach STEM Educators Conference, June 13–15, 2023.
