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.
The Alabama STEM Council directed a legislative appropriation to launch six 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 at Birmingham.
The new UTeach programs began at the following universities in Spring of 2023:
- Alabama A&M University
- Auburn University
- Auburn University at Montgomery
- Athens State University
- University of South Alabama
- University of West Alabama
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.
