Associated Universities recognizes the importance of cultivating excellence, delivering value, enhancing education, and engaging the public. The AUI Office of Education and Public Engagement (OEPE) builds on decades of experience across formal and informal education and outreach, and the management of large complex science projects and facilities. Through the OEPE AUI works to identify and develop initiatives that are innovative and potentially transformative in STEM related education and outreach.
The OEPE mandate includes:
- Design, develop, and coordinate projects and programs that have the potential to significantly improve teaching and learning across STEM related disciplines,
- Collaborate with partners to develop competitive funding proposals for innovative and potentially transformative projects in STEM related education,
- Provide leadership in fiscal and project management and reporting for collaborations with large complex awards,
- Provide high-quality consulting services to organizations (e.g. schools, universities, science centers, etc.) that wish to review and improve the quality of STEM related education programs they provide.
OEPE continues to actively seek new partners to collaborate with and new sources of funding to expand our portfolio of STEM activities.
