Conference Sponsors

The Conference is being sponsored by Charter College of Education, CSU Los Angeles, the CSU Chancellor's Office, the S.D. Bechtel, Jr. Foundation, and the National Science Foundation.

Conference Focus

Particular attention will be given to curriculum and program changes, both in content and pedagogy that address the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics (CCSS-M) and the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS).

In addition to panel sessions with presentations by expert faculty from the CSU and community colleges and K-12 leaders in STEM, the agenda includes facilitated breakout sessions for faculty to work with others from their discipline, their institution, and their regional partners on reforms in science and math that reflect the CCSS-M and NGSS.
