The Quantitative Undergraduate Biology Education & Synthesis (QUBES; project has adopted a “gateway” model to accelerate undergraduate biology education reform. Gateways are purpose-built integrated suites of resources and tools that support the work of professional communities. As such, QUBES provides an accessible and integrated cyberinfrastructure that makes it possible to coordinate and streamline the work of a diverse and distributed community of biology educators. The QUBES services include an online professional development model (Faculty Mentoring Networks – FMNs), an open educational resources publication and versioning platform, diverse types of community hosting, workshop support, and access to cloud-based computational resources. The integration of these functionalities within a single gateway provides important opportunities for both individual faculty and education projects to engage with the professional community and amplify their scholarship. We argue that professional participation through a scientific gateway reflects a more robust and sustainable set of strategies for reforming undergraduate STEM education.
