An Examination of Sustainability and Institutional Change in the NSF-MSP Program


The Math and Science Partnership (MSP) Program at the National Science Foundation (NSF) promotes the development, implementation, and sustainability of exemplary partnerships and the institutionalization of its effective programs, policies, procedures, and activities to advance high-quality mathematics and science education. NSF encourages the engagement of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) faculty in these partnerships that also involve the departments or schools of education at institutions of higher education (IHEs). The MSP Program is about deepening the knowledge and understanding of mathematics and the sciences for K-12 students, for preservice students, and for in-service educators. It also is about making the changes needed to support and sustain that outcome (e.g., changes in teaching practice at all levels, curricular change at all levels, changes in institutional practice and policies, or increased use of evidence).
