  Abstract: To help battle the shortage of highly qualified science and math teachers, Colorado School of Mines (Mines) and University of Northern Colorado (UNC) have recently created a unique partnership that plays on each institution’s strengths to produce highly-qualified STEM teachers. Mines prepares students with a strong understanding of STEM subjects, and UNC provides the coursework in education and pedagogy necessary to become a secondary science or mathematics teacher in Colorado. TEAM-UP began enrolling students in the fall semester of 2015, with additional students adding each semester. In this talk, we will describe: the evolution and structure of TEAM-UP; strategies we have employed to recruit students and improve the program; and challenges we have overcome as a collaboration.
