SDSU Math/Science Teacher Initiative (MSTI)

Full project name: The San Diego State University Mathematics Science Teacher Initiative (MSTI)

Principal Investigator: Rafaela Santa Cruz.

MSTI is a comprehensive program to double the College of Education credential enrollments in mathematics and science.  The first component of the program focuses on expanding numbers of candidates seeking other credentials who also obtain mathematics or biology credentials.  The second component creates a new pathway for community college transfer students interested in mathematics and science credentials.  The third component seeks to add new pools of students by identifying and mentoring high school students interested in teaching mathematics or science.
