The North Carolina State University, College of Education, Department of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics Education Records include flyers, brochures, photographs, and materials regarding the annual Graphic Communications Distinguished Lecture and Banquet. Also included are videotapes and CD-ROMs of the banquet. Most materials are from the Graphic Communications program and appear to be largely from the files of Professor William J. Vander Wall. Also included are photographs of the Math Education Program and Science Education Program. All materials range in date from 1944 to 2008.

Courses in mathematics and science education have been offered at NC State University (then, North Carolina State College) since the 1920s. In 1949, degree programs in Mathematics and Science Education were formalized and approved. In 1995, the Graphic Communications program merged with the Math and Science Education program to form the Department of Mathematics, Science, and Technology Education.

Now called Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics Education (or "STEM"), the department prepares quality educators for middle, secondary and post-secondary school science, technology, engineering, mathematics, and graphic communications. It is divided into four programs: Graphic Communications, Mathematics Education, Science Education, and Technology, Engineering, and Design Education.
