Leadership and Support for STEM Education

California calls on its State Universities to train public school teachers at all grade levels. STEM disciplines offer unique teaching challenges—and unparalleled opportunities—for a diverse population. STEM jobs are the fastest-growing economic sector in the Bay Area, and employers are eager to build a diverse local workforce.

Cal State East Bay, serving the most diverse population in the state, established the Institute in 2011 to create a powerful regional center for STEM education—serving the hiring needs of employers as it provides education and opportunity to students throughout the region.​ The Institute accomplishes its mission with a Collective Impact approach, bringing together cross-disciplinary resources both on campus and throughout the community, united by the shared goal of STEM education equity for all, from cradle to career.​
