The UGA Office of STEM Education (OSE) serves University professors and K-12 teachers to improve the teaching and learning of STEM discplines (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics). With generous support from the University System of Georgia Board of Regents (USG-BOR) and the UGA administration, the OSE supplies research mini-grants, supports STEM Learning Communities, provides letters of support to faculty, and promotes STEM fields to undergraduates and K-12 students. The OSE provides this support to boost learning initiatives, recruit more students, and improve student retention in STEM majors.
