About the Advanced Placement® Teacher Investment Program

Who We Are

The Advanced Placement Teacher Investment Program is a non-profit program of the Center for STEM Education and the Institute for Educational Initiatives at the University of Notre Dame. We are a state-wide math, science, and English initiative dedicated to improving Indiana’s students’ college and career readiness.

Our model is premised on proven success and a philosophy of inclusiveness and high expectations for each student to prepare successfully for, and participate in, academically rigorous coursework, namely the Advanced Placement (AP®) Program. 


Our Essential Intent

The Advanced Placement Teacher Investment Program empowers teachers and school leaders to create accessible and challenging learning environments that advance all students’ readiness for college, career, and life.

AP-TIP centers its work on Advanced Placement course work and assessments not as an ends, but one means to advancing the program’s essential intent.
