We prepare our students to address critical issues in mathematics education. To do this, we work closely with the Kaput Center for Research and Innovation in STEM Education to foster a spirit of innovation. The Kaput Center provides the core strength for the program and establishes its uniqueness in comparison with other doctoral programs in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts and beyond.
