Rowan University has been awarded $2.5 million to work with four southern New Jersey school districts in reforming
mathematics and science instruction. As a partner in a $12.3 million grant to Rutgers University from the National Science
Foundation, Rowan will also collaborate with Kean University and eight other NJ districts.

The Rowan, Rutgers and Kean partnership was one of seven nationwide proposals awarded the NSF grants.  The funds, which will be disbursed over five years, will be used to unite the activities of higher education institutions, pre-kindergarten through high school systems and other partners to support better teacher development in math and science, and raise student achievement.

The Math and Science Partnership in southern New Jersey will be administered through the Mathematics, Computer, and
Science Instructional Improvement Program (McSiip), which is part of the Liberal Arts and Sciences Institute at Rowan
University.  McSiip is a New Jersey registered professional development provider.
