The National Science Foundation’s Course, Curriculum, and Laboratory Improvement (CCLI) program seeks to improve the quality of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) education for all undergraduate students. Based on a cyclic model of knowledge production and improvement of practice, CCLI supports efforts that conduct research on STEM teaching and learning, create new learning materials and teaching strategies, develop faculty expertise, implement educational innovations, assess learning, and evaluate innovations. The program supports three types of projects representing three different phases of development, ranging from small exploratory investigations to comprehensive projects.

The CCLI program addresses challenges identified in several major reports. For example the report, Greater Expectations: A New Vision for Learning as a Nation Goes to College, ( recommends enabling students to become empowered, informed, and responsible learners ready to assume productive roles in society in both STEM and non-STEM related careers.
