What We Do
We’re advancing STEM teacher preparation and support.

UTeach creates exceptional STEM educators. And we do it better than anyone else.

We get more kids excited about STEM because their teachers are more passionate, better trained, and more connected to a community of like-minded educators.

UTeach is an innovative university-based teacher preparation program that increases the number of qualified STEM teachers in U.S. secondary schools. 

What makes us different

"UTeach is really a remarkable phenomenon. University after university has adopted the mission of preparing more mathematics and science teachers. This cause is very important, and that's why it has spread so well."

Michael Marder, UTeach Executive Director and Professor of Physics at The University of Texas at Austin

The unique UTeach program model attracts a diverse collection of STEM majors and increases the number of highly qualified secondary STEM teachers that universities produce. 

The UTeach Institute offers a proven implementation support process that helps universities establish a successful, sustainable UTeach program in as little as three years. We provide all instructional and program resources, guide new programs through program planning, and provide intensive support for operational and instructional implementation.

We offer solutions that meet a variety of university needs to help them develop strong STEM teacher preparation pathways—from limited consulting and access to program resources to full UTeach program implementation.

We work in collaboration with the National Math and Science Initiative to transform STEM education nationwide.

Supporting STEM Teaching and Learning

We also support initiatives focused on improving STEM teaching and learning in K–12 classrooms.
