Initiative Goals


Our EI2 programming aims to achieve the following goals:
  • Develop students’ identity by building learning communities, providing undergraduate research learning opportunities and providing career-related mentoring, including attending conferences on science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM)
  • Integrate real world problem-solving and entrepreneurship in the STEM curriculum by adopting technology into STEM courses and expanding student access to maker spaces to support multidisciplinary learning
  • Build a critical mass of faculty as change agents by providing professional development to faculty on experiential learning and evidence-based teaching
  • Build a preK-20 STEM pipeline through partnerships by hosting STEM competitions for elementary, middle and high school students and collaborating with the Prince George’s School district to enable high school students to enroll in Bowie State credit-bearing courses
