UTeach Alabama
Increasing and diversifying the pipeline of secondary STEM teachers in Alabama

The Alabama STEM Council and the UTeach Institute are partnering to increase the number of effective STEM teachers and to diversify the pipeline of secondary STEM teachers in Alabama.

We invite proposals from state-supported colleges and universities to develop new teacher certification programs based on the UTeach model and to expand existing UTeach programs.

The Alabama STEM Council will direct an initial $4.5 million legislative appropriation to launch four new UTeach STEM teacher preparation programs at state-supported Alabama colleges and universities and to further expand the UABTeach program at the University of Alabama Birmingham. The STEM Council is partnering with the UTeach Institute at The University of Texas at Austin and the Alabama Commission on Higher Education to manage a competitive call for proposal process and provide program implementation support to selected higher education partners. Qualified institutions will be eligible to receive up to $3 million in funding over five years to recruit and prepare secondary STEM teachers.

The goals of this effort align with the work of the Alabama STEM Council and the UTeach Institute to increase the number of effective STEM teachers and to diversify the pipeline of secondary STEM teachers.

Continuing shortages of teachers in Alabama classrooms—particularly in STEM subjects—make this opportunity particularly timely.
