By creating coordinated partnerships among 2-year colleges and the 4-year research universities in Colorado, we will create pathways that increase the number of students, and the quality of their preparation, from historically underrepresented populations in the STEM fields (including students

TRESTLE is a 7-institution NSF-funded project to support improvements in undergraduate STEM education through (1) supporting course design projects, (2) enhancing educational expertise in departments, and (3) building communities within and across campuses to enhance the impact of local experts.
The STEM Institutional Transformation Action Research (SITAR) Project, housed in the Center for STEM Learning, aims to improve undergraduate STEM education by professionalizing educational practice through measurement, assessment, and cultural change.
The CU-SEI program has had a broad array of impacts. Across the program as a whole, over 100 faculty have been impacted by the SEI, with over 90 having modified their instruction based on the SEI efforts. 
The  Center for STEM Learning: Housed within the Graduate School, the Center for STEM Learning (CSL) was officially formed on December 20, 2012. CSL is an outcome of the NSF Grant “I3: Towards a Center for STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) Education.”
The Colorado Learning Assistant (LA) Model: Launched at CU Boulder in 2003, its purpose is to increase STEM research faculty members’ awareness and involvement in evidence-based reforms and to support STEM teacher recruitment and preparation.
In early 2016, the REBUILD committee harnessed the momentum provided by REBUILD to launch a university-wide Foundational Course Initiative. In partnership with Michigan’s Center for Research on Teaching and Learning, we talked to hundreds of administrators, faculty, staff, and students representing numerous schools and colleges, departments, student support programs, residential learning communities, and other units at Michigan.
Yale’s Center for Teaching and Learning (CTL) promotes equitable and engaged teaching throughout the University, and supports students across the curriculum as they take ownership of their learning. As part of the CTL’s mission, it encourages innovation and enhancement in teaching and learning through the considered use of technology.
The "Being Human in STEM” project started as a class in fall 2016, adopting the same format as a course from Amherst College by Dr. Sheila Jaswal. The project will help establish a dialogue between STEM students and faculty, while working together to improve the accessibility and inclusivity of STEM at Yale.
The Summer Institutes on Scientific Teaching work to transform STEM education through evidence-based practice. At regional Summer Institutes, college and university faculty, instructional staff, and future faculty develop teaching skills at multi-day workshops. Workshop topics focus on current research, active learning, assessment, and inclusive teaching provide to create a forum to share ideas and develop innovative instructional materials designed for implementation at home campuses.
