SHSU Receives National Science Foundation Award

Published on August 10, 2017 by Larry Crippen

The National Science Foundation has awarded Sam Houston State University an intended total amount of more than $2 million to support the project entitled, “A Comprehensive Model for Improving the Success of STEM Majors through the STEM Center.”

The project, which the award will begin aiding on Sept. 1, is under the direction of faculty administrative fellow Brian Loft. The project aims to increase the number of STEM graduates, as well as the quality of these graduates.

Loft said, “This award is very important.” He said, “Our faculty, instructors and graduate students are always devoted to students learning more and learning better, but it usually takes a lot of time and resources to change the way we teach our classes.

He added that,“This grant will establish a STEM Center. There really hasn’t been one before.” He said, they’ve “done small projects in the past but nothing this big and comprehensive.”
