The Center for Excellence in Education works with companies, academic institutions, foundations, agencies, education organizations, and academic community groups to create and strengthen public/private partnerships to better serve urban and rural STEM teachers and their students. CEE's Teacher Enrichment Program aims to increase engagement of the STEM community with local schools to provide opportunities such as classroom speakers, mentorships, job shadowing, field trips, and additional resources for teachers and their students. CEE is grateful to have a number of companies, organizations, and foundations as partners and supporters of TEP.
