About NMSI
The primary mission of Northcoast Mathematics and Science Initiative (NMSI) is to enhance the mathematics and science teaching professions through recruitment and training of individuals with strong mathematics and science backgrounds and enthusiastic dispositions entering the teaching profession. Related activities also include professional development opportunities for practicing teachers.

NMSI was founded in 2004 with a grant from the California Post-Secondary Education Commission together with support from regional schools and Humboldt State University. More recently, ongoing funding comes from the California State University’s Mathematics and Science Teacher Initiative.
