Educating students to be life-long learners through an innovative approach to learning that combines theory, practice and experimentation in science, technology, engineering and mathematics.
Develop systems providing for integration of course embedded assessments, student performance data, and current research into standard practices for course development and delivery. Focus on factors concerning access, retention, diversity, and graduation rates.
Establish a continuing review of the research literature and college data to motivate studies of practices for inspiring student achievement in CSTEMM. Identify key academic and resource advantages in the balance of location-based, technology-delivered, and project driven programming.
Identify alignments of college strengths, available college/university funds, current grant programs, opportunities for collaboration with external organizations, and interests of potential donors toward increasing funding and in-kind support for applied research, industrial projects, laboratory development, scholarships, and other college initiatives each year.
Initiate opportunities for the emergence of a community of current and future CSTEMM experts, committed to the power of cross disciplinary ideas and new academic advances to generate innovations of significance for economic growth
Determine methods of quantifying the academic and budgetary impact of our decisions. Automate data collection and make the results readily available to guide future planning
Develop effective and immediate responses for calls to action from our university, system, and state, advancing common goals of academic, economic, and societal significance
The UW-Stout Discovery Center, encompassing Applied Research and Stout Technology Transfer Institute (STTI), is closely affiliated with the STEMM College. STTI currently contains thirteen business outreach centers with primary focus upon providing technical assistance to business, industry, government and entrepreneurs:
The College also has many different tutor centers within departments and the nationally recognized Math Teaching & Learning Center which teaches students basic math skills in a people-oriented, technology-enhanced environment. It is housed in the Mathematics, Statistics, and Computer Science Department, which recently received the 16th annual UW Board of Regents Teaching Excellence Award for Academic Departments and Programs.
