Cal Teach is a University of California system-wide program launched on all UC undergraduate campuses in 2005-2006 to increase both the quantity and quality of new K-12 science and math teachers. At UC Santa Cruz, Cal Teach provides academic and professional preparation for science, math, and engineering majors who are exploring teaching careers. The primary activity of the program is to offer K-12 school-based internships and associated coursework for undergraduate science, math, and engineering majors. After completing the baccalaureate degree Cal Teach students may enter a teaching credential program or simultaneously pursue work as a teacher and a credential, and the program provides some support for graduates into their early teaching careers. As a unit within the Physical and Biological Sciences Division, Cal Teach cooperates and coordinates with academic departments in three divisions (Physical and Biological Sciences, School of Engineering, and Social Sciences), and with the Division of Undergraduate Education, the Graduate Division, and the Student Affairs Division.
