To conduct our research we collaborate with schools and districts across South Florida and we work closely with a variety of Schools and Departments across the UM campuses, including the College of Engineering, College of Arts and Sciences, and Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Science. The Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) program is offered at University of Miami.


Situated in South Florida, home to one of the highest numbers of foreign-born residents in the world, TAL’s Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) education program  at the University of Miami features a diverse group of core and affiliated faculty whose research advances scientific knowledge about STEM teaching and learning where issues of language, culture, and poverty are paramount.

 In our efforts to understand how issues of equity and diversity play out across preK-through post-secondary STEM education, our work includes attention to race and ethnicity, gender, student exceptionality and social class.
