The mission of VolsTeach is to increase the number of highly-qualified teachers in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) classrooms. To that end, the program offers various scholarships and internships to support student learning and preparation, and hosts an annual lecture series of distinguished scholars in relevant STEM disciplines.
The VolsTeach program is grateful for the continued generosity of many of its supporters. This generosity plays a large part in the program’s ability to provide enriching opportunities for future STEM educators. Interested parties may contribute to the program’s general (unrestricted) funds or to more specialized funds (restricted).
VolsTeach is a unique and collaborative venture between the College of Arts and Sciences and the College of Education, Health, and Human Sciences. Therefore, both colleges have created a mechanism to support VolsTeach through the donation of unrestricted gifts (please note: Gifts to either college support the VolsTeach program). Gifts in this account allows VolsTeach to utilize funds where the need is greatest, and enables the program to effectively engage in long-term planning while addressing imminent budgetary needs.
