Stephanie Salomone, mathematics, has successfully completed a grant proposal which will allow the University to take part in a $3.3 million grant through the Western Regional Noyce Alliance. Salomone will serve as principal investigator on a subcontract of $400,000 to plan and run a Western Regional Noyce Conference in Portland in February 2020. This will be different than UP’s current Noyce grant, also led by Salomone. The conference will be a professional development opportunity for pre-service and in-service K-12 science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) teachers in high-needs schools who have participated in Noyce programs in the Western part of the United States. It will also engage teacher educators from higher education in dialog about how to better prepare and retain teachers in high-needs schools.
This has been a collaborative effort with many other institutions, including San Francisco State University, Cal Poly San Luis Obispo, San Diego State University, Northern Arizona University, University of Texas Arlington, Fresno State, and Arizona.
