Luján Welcomes $124,998 to Support STEM Education at Dona Ana Branch Community College

Washington, D.C. – Today, U.S. Senator Ben Ray Luján (D-N.M.) welcomed $124,998 in funding for the Dona Ana Branch Community College to help develop teacher education pathways from the community college into the main university campus of New Mexico State University (NMSU). By collaborating with NMSU, this innovative partnership will help better recruit and prepare teachers to be effective STEM educators for New Mexico students.

This funding was made possible through a recent National Science Foundation (NSF) project that aims to address the challenge of teacher shortages in high-need school districts particularly in STEM areas.

“I’m proud to welcome this funding that will help boost STEM education in New Mexico,” said Luján. “As science and technology are emerging industries in New Mexico, it’s critical that our teachers have pathways to gain the knowledge they need to set up students for success in STEM education. I’m glad this funding will help support that effort to close the gap and ensure STEM is a key piece of students’ learning experience.”
