IU starts effort to improve science, math education
South Bend Tribune
Indiana University is starting an effort to increase the involvement of its faculty in improving math and science education at the state's elementary, middle and high schools.
Michael McRobbie, IU's vice president for academic affairs, said the Institute for Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics Education would promote collaboration between IU faculty and K-12 educators, as well as with policy makers and business and community leaders.
"We felt there was a real opportunity for us to participate in helping affect this strengthening, given the expertise we have particularly in the School of Education but also in a number of science departments," he said Friday.
