Who We Are
We're the UTeach Institute. We prepare teachers. They change the world.

We are a national network of colleges and universities working together to improve STEM teaching and learning in the U.S. 


The very best teachers are prepared by U.S. colleges and universities, home to the world’s top scientific minds and education researchers. The UTeach Institute partners with them to better recruit and prepare the nation’s best STEM teachers.

What makes us different

We have more than a decade of experience supporting the successful implementation of UTeach programs across a variety of university settings. Our proven model is research-based and employs an improvement approach designed to take advantage of our network of faculty expertise.

The UTeach network crosses the entire nation, with UTeach teacher preparation programs in 49 universities in 23 states and the District of Columbia and thousands of UTeach alumni working at school, district, and state levels to improve secondary STEM education.

In collaboration with the National Math and Science Initiative, we support UTeach teacher preparation programs with comprehensive resources and technical assistance to universities implementing the program. Through the UTeach STEM Educators Association (USEA), we continue that support through the national network. 

Our National UTeach Alumni Network connects our thousands of alumni teachers and leaders across the U.S.—giving them an online community where they support each other.
