Established in 1999, eMINTS has grown with technology and established strong industry affiliations, grants and awards along the way. Some of the highlights include:

eMINTS is proud to be a part of the nationally ranked College of Education at the University of Missouri, which promotes the development and implementation of academically researched educational innovation best practices.
In 2013, the eMINTS Comprehensive PD Program was again awarded the ISTE Mastery Seal of Alignment with the ISTE Standards for teachers. In 2005 the program was the first in the world to earn this Alignment Seal.
ISTE honored Dr. Monica Beglau, recently retired Executive Director of the eMINTS National Center, in 2011. It seeks to recognize “those whose exemplary work provides a model for teaching, learning and leading in the digital age.”
Collaborating with Intel, CDW-G, Brain-Pop, and SMART Technologies made it possible for eMINTS to win a 2011 Investing in Innovations Grant award.
