Improving Undergraduate STEM Education

Landmark College and the University of Central Florida (UCF) were recently awarded a $249,784  National Science Foundation (NSF-IUSE:EHR) grant entitled "Interdisciplinary Coaching as a Nexus for Transforming How Institutions Support Undergraduates in STEM (iCAN)," 

Landmark College has developed a highly successful portfolio of supports for their students. This project will determine and identify the supports that are the most efficacious. These supports will then be digitized and piloted with students with disabilities in STEM majors at UCF. The overarching goal is to enhance persistence and performances for all students in STEM majors. The two year grant is part of NSF’s Improving Undergraduate STEM Education (IUSE) solicitation.
