STEM Gateway- Request for Proposals

Submit a proposal before the April 7th deadline to redesign your STEM course!

Gateway Science and Math Course Redesign Projects:

STEM Gateway will be providing supporting resources for instructors of STEM (science, technology, engineering, mathematics) gateway course at UNM to redesign their courses; gateway courses include not only the foundational classes that you teach for your department’s majors (mostly at 100 or 200 level) but also the mathematics, chemistry, and physics courses that are common to many STEM degrees. 

Course Redesign Projects are faculty-driven curriculum and pedagogy redesign efforts to utilize research-based instructional changes and align course outcomes and assessment. Course redesign teams for three courses will be selected each year from proposals submitted by faculty within departments. You can view project goals for the course redesign projects from years 1 and 2 at the STEM Gateway web pages Proposals for the third-year cohort of course-reform teams can also be found on the website listed above. Contact Gary Smith at for more information.
