SENCER LOGO

SENCER is a faculty development and science education reform program supported by the National Science Foundation (NSF). SENCER has established and supported an ever-growing international community of faculty, students, academic leaders, and others to improve undergraduate STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) education by connecting learning to critical civic questions. SENCER is the signature program of the National Center for Science and Civic Engagement.

As part of its mission to bring more students and teachers into science and math, in January 2010, the National Center for Science and Civic Engagement established a new center for science education in the College of Arts and Sciences at Texas Woman’s University: the SENCER Center for Innovation (SCI)-Southwest.  The co-directors for SCI-Southwest are Dr. Richard Sheardy, Chair, Chemistry and Biochemistry, and Dr. Ann Staton, Dean, College of Arts and Sciences.
