Our Mission

"STEP Central" aims to build and support a "community of practice" among those working to increase the number of college graduates in science, technology, engineering and mathematics in the United States. This includes all of the scientists, administrators, student support specialists and evaluators involved in projects funded by NSF's STEM Talent Expansion Program (STEP). Soon we will grow to become "STEM Central", and serve as a valuable networking resource for the broader undergraduate STEM education community, while still serving the specific needs of those with NSF-funded projects.

Learn more about us and our community.
