About Us

The STEM Transformation Institute (STEM-TI) is a multidisciplinary collaboration across the Colleges of Arts, Sciences & Education, and Engineering & Computing, for the research and development of effective educational practices that lead to substantial increases in the number of well-prepared STEM professionals, including teachers, graduating from FIU.

The STEM Institute capitalizes on the unique skills our diverse student population brings to their learning and ultimately the workforce. The Institute is FIU’s response to national calls for 100,000 new STEM teachers and an additional 1,000,000 STEM professionals over the next 10 years; hence, our vision that the Institute serve as a living laboratory that disseminates practices, policies, and STEM professionals across the nation.

Undertaking this challenge requires partnering with local K-12 schools, colleges, businesses and industry, foundations, and national education leaders in order to create an educational landscape that supports all students coming through multiple pathways, and leading to a productive workforce.
