As part of the STEM BUILD at UMBC Initiative’s Institutional Development Core, the University is working to:

  • Embrace “active learning” pedagogies to increase the efficiency of learning
  • Invest in pedagogical innovations (i.e., infrastructure) to increase the capacity to prepare students for careers in biomedical and behavioral research, which includes the STEM Living and Learning Community campus residential opportunity for undergraduates
  • Establish faculty development programs needed for researchers to effectively mentor a greater portion of the student population, which includes BUILD Faculty Training and the Active Learning, Inquiry Teaching (ALIT) Certificate for STEM Faculty (BUILD Certificate)
