Noyce Scholars Program
A Program for Students Pursuing Careers as STEM Teachers
This is a collaboration between Midland College and Texas Tech University. The Noyce Scholars program is primarily designed for undergraduate STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) students who are interested in making an impact through teaching. The program is divided into two tracks: Pre-Noyce Summer Fellows and Noyce Scholars. More on this program at www.depts.ttu.edu/stem/noyce

In 2014, the National Science Foundation named Texas Tech University with partnering institutions Midland College, Odessa College and Mesalands Community College as recipients of an S-STEM award, the South Plains Mathematics Fellowship (SPMF) program. The SPMF program provides for academically talented students from underrepresented, low-income families to receive scholarships for undergraduate study leading to a degree in mathematics. In addition to the standard coursework, SPMF scholars will have a support system designed specifically to enhance their academic experiences and ensure retention and success.
There are three main objectives of the Department of Mathematics: to provide a sound curriculum for students who wish to pursue a career in mathematics or mathematical education; to provide adequate training for students in science, engineering, and occupational technical programs; and to provide math courses to satisfy general degree requirements. MathLab is used/required in the calculus series.
