Abstract

The nationwide National Science Foundation (NSF) Innovation through Institutional Integration (I3) program challenges faculty, administrators, and project partners to think strategically about the creative integration of NSF-funded awards and to provide students with an interdisciplinary, cross-curriculum, technologically current approach to Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) curriculum. The NSF I3 program places particular emphasis on underrepresented minorities seeking two- and four-year degrees in STEM disciplines. The focus of this chapter is on how survey data collected across STEM departments in the School of Arts and Sciences and the School of Technology and Design have been used to guide the City Tech I3 Project to implement case study teaching methodologies as a means for creating institutional change in STEM laboratories. The City Tech I3 Project addresses three of the national NSF I3 goals: broadening participation, integrating research and education, and developing a global workforce.
