About the 2019 NSEC National Conference:
The 2019 NSEC National Conference is our annual convening of STEM Education Centers, Centers for Teaching and Learning that have a STEM agenda, those who work closely with these centers, and/or representatives considering implementing a center. We welcome interested faculty, staff, administrators, and colleagues from disciplinary societies, associations, and national projects that want to learn about the newest innovations in improving undergraduate STEM education.

Our seventh national convening begins with a half-day professional development workshop on inclusive education, followed by plenary and concurrent sessions, roundtables, and a poster session. Check out the conference program here: 2019 Program Guide draft.pdf

Here is what you will find at NSEC 2019:
Learn about how centers are advancing inclusive education. Hear how UC Davis is Supporting Student Equity by Supporting Faculty and the Instructional System, or how the University of Utah is Utilizing a Learning Assistant Pedagogy Course to Explore and Address Impacts of Structural Oppression on Learning. We also have a workshop led by the University of Kansas on Strategies for developing and maintaining a positive workplace climate.

Find out how you can drive the retention and success of students. Check out Catalyzing Change in Mathematics Education at a Hispanic Serving Institution by FIU.

Discover innovative ways to build partnerships beyond the university. Join us for Empowering Educators to Change Institutions for K-16+ Education led by the University of Maine or an innovative program out of SIUE on Digital Badges for Recognition of Student STEM Community Engagement.

Gain insight into how to manage a center from funding to assessment. Don't miss our Workshop on Building Evaluation Capacity in STEM Education Centers: An Approach to Better "See" Your Programs led by the University of Wisconsin Madison. And last but not least, carve out time for insights on Fundraising 101 from the Florida Gulf Coast University.
