Tennessee STEM Education Center

The Tennessee Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics Education Center (TSEC) is a research and outreach arm of MTSU, aimed at improving K-20 STEM education both locally and nationally.  TSEC partners with internal and external stakeholders to identify and address critical issues that impact access, equity, innovation, and leadership through collaborative activities, sponsored projects, and dissemination products at professional meetings and in practitioner and research journals. TSEC currently sponsors several high-profile annual events including the STEM Education Research Conference, the STEM Expo, and Posters at the Capitol, and invites the MTSU community to fulfill and refine the TSEC mission and vision through its involvement in existing programming or by initiating a conversation with us about how to better serve our constituencies.  


The Tennessee STEM Education Center at MTSU would like to introduce Dr. Ginger Rowell as the an Associate Director. Ginger has been teaching at MTSU since Fall of 2000 and over the past year has been an integral figure in TSEC by acting as interim director, coordinating research conferences, and facilitating her grant work on Student Engagement in Statistics. Her hard work has been invaluable to growing our department and we look forward to working with her on future endeavors.
