Abstract for the conference program

At Georgia College, implementation of the USG STEM II Initiative is flourishing and multi-faceted. Our initiative offers faculty opportunities to engage in a vibrant culture that values the scholarship of STEM teaching and learning. Similarly, students provide K12 STEM teacher support or peer-facilitated tutoring for hundreds of students in entry-level STEM courses. Between 2007 and 2012, Georgia College observed significant increases in STEM/STEM Education majors and in STEM/STEM education degrees conferred. STEM II at Georgia College has not only made a positive impact on student performance and retention but also has helped create an environment that fosters creativity and innovation as well as institutional, statewide and national recognition of STEM-related work. Supported by USG Presidential STEM Initiative.
