The Cullen College of Engineering is part of a new University of Houston center that focuses on best practices in the teaching of science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) education to address the state’s need for increases in the number of students pursuing and graduating from these programs. 

The UH Center for STEM Teacher Professional Learning was established with a grant from the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board. The two-year, $400,000 award allows for research and coordination of STEM professional development tools and programs. Electrical and computer engineering professor Fritz Claydon, education professor and center director Wallace Dominey of the College of Education, and professor Rebecca Forrest of the College of Natural Science and Mathematics are the grant's principal investigators.
