Creating a Coherent Gateway for STEM Teaching and Learning at MSU (AAU) endeavors to change the culture at Michigan State University so that teaching and learning are valued and rewarded.  The primary mechanisms to enact this change are (1) helping individual departments develop a shared vision for their gateway courses and (2) developing policies and structures to support and reward curricular improvements.
