STEP STEM Teacher Education Pathways Sonoma State University logo

Sonoma State’s STEM Teacher Education Pathways (STEP) is a collaboration between the School of Education and the School of Science and Technology, funded primarily through the California State University’s Math and Science Teacher Initiative (MSTI) program.

We thrive to expand and diversify the pool of highly prepared TK - 12 educators to teach and integrate science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) in classrooms across the North Bay and the surrounding region.

Our mission is to provide high quality pathways and programs that support the teaching and learning of STEM through training, professional development, scholarships, and research.
