Math and Science Teacher Initiative (MSTI)


Do you love math or science?

Are you interested in sharing that passion with kids?

Become a teacher and learn how to use math and science to help students make sense of the world around them!

The Math and Science Teacher Initiative (
MSTI) provides support for students and inservice teachers to network in the math and science teaching community, and also offers great opportunities to attend conferences and professional development. MSTI is part of a CSU system-wide project to increase math and science teachers, and will play a big role in addressing an acute math and science teacher shortage (30,000 in the next 10 years). 

For students, MSTI can provide extensive opportunities to get out into local schools to interact with K-12 children in math and science and has scholarship money for all FOUR years and beyond if you engage NOW!

For inservice teachers, MSTI can assist with the costs associated with adding math and/or science teaching credentials onto your existing one.
