Nearly 80 colleges and universities spanning 32 states have thus far pledged their intent to commit to the Science and Mathematics Teacher Imperative (SMTI), an ambitious effort by member institutions of NASULGC, A Public University Association, to:
- Substantially increase the number and diversity of high quality mathematics and science teachers in middle and high schools;
- Identify immediate and longer term needs for science and mathematics teachers in states where NASULGC member institutions are located; and,
- Build partnerships among universities, school systems, state governments and other entities to address statewide needs for teachers on a sustained basis.
