About the Academy

The Hoosier STEM Academy is a partnership among Ball State University, IUPUI, Purdue University, and Valparaiso University whose goal is to address a teacher shortage in Indiana in the fields of science, technology, engineering, and math. The academy offers two programs: one for STEM professionals planning to transition to teaching and one for already-licensed teachers who wish to take graduate-level STEM courses to complete their credential to teach dual-credit courses at Indiana high schools.
