IEM IDEA Project Collaborators

IEM*IDEA collaborators support the project in the following ways: they recruit participants, design evaluation materials, coordinate outreach efforts, assist with conferences and disseminate information about the IEM and IEM*IDEA to minority colleges, 4-year teaching colleges and community colleges. Because of these efforts each of these collaborators is an integral part of the success of IEM*IDEA.
