The Scientists Engaged in Educational Research (SEER) Center facilitates cutting-edge research in the field of STEM education through multi-disciplinary interactions and research collaborations among a community of scientists from different colleges, departments and the medical partnership. Research areas include: basic research grounded within STEM disciplines and informed by evidence-based theory in educational and social sciences applied research to provide evidence-based approaches to transform teaching and learning at colleges and universitiesResearch generated by participants in the Center catalyzes the transformation of STEM teaching and learning locally and nationally.


The SEER Center will lead educational research aimed at improving student learning across STEM disciplines by developing collaborations among faculty, postdocs, graduate students, undergrads, and administrators. 


Founded in 2016, SEER has quickly established an active and growing membership including 21 core faculty; 16 core postdocs and graduate students; 27 affiliates. Our executive board provides strong guidance and receives input from an external advisory board. We look forward to the future and the opportunity to do more with additional resources.
