Our Mission: CASE leverages the physical and intellectual resources of BSU to build and support a community of faculty, staff, and students that promotes and increases interest and literacy in science and mathematics among preK-16 students, pre-service and in-service teachers, and members of the community both regionally and internationally. CASE aims to

  • Support undergraduate student success by providing students with STEM service learning and leadership opportunities (BSU Strategic Plan: Goals 1 & 2)
  • Provide faculty and staff outreach opportunities that promote personal and professional growth (BSU Strategic Plan: Goals 2 & 3)
  • Serve as a catalyst for STEM intellectual engagement in the regional community and beyond through outreach programs (BSU Strategic Plan: Goal 4)
  • Advance diversity in STEM fields through engagement of traditionally under-represented groups in STEM programming (BSU Strategic Plan: Goal 5)
