Established in 2007, the teachHOUSTON program was created to address the shortage of qualified math and science teachers in our country.

Modeled after a successful format at the University of Texas at Austin, teachHOUSTON is a new collaborative project of the University of Houston College of Natural Sciences and Mathematics, the College of Education, and local school districts. More info


Scholar Enrichment Program

The College of Natural Sciences and Mathematics at the University of Houston implemented the Scholar Enrichment Program (SEP) in the fall semester of 1992 for the academic enhancement and retention of undergraduate students.

Based on the Collaborative Learning Model, SEP’s hallmark is the creation of a learning community for students in high-risk classes, with workshops designed to enhance learning and problem-solving skills. SEP has produced higher retention rates and fewer withdrawals or failures, and its students consistently earn higher grades as a group than do non-SEP students. Also, participants in SEP workshops tend to graduate in significantly higher percentages. More info
