As a faculty member at SVSU, you play a critical role in guiding our undergraduate students to a STEM-related career or graduate school. As the university is growing partnerships in the Great Lakes Bay Region to enhance STEM education in K-12, our faculty will be sought-after as mentors to teachers and high school students.
Consider applying to be a paid faculty intern director for the Dow Science and Sustainability Education Center (DSSEC). SVSU faculty will direct projects related to the Saginaw Bay Watershed and closely aligned with the Saginaw Bay Environmental Science Institute (SBESI). Funding is available for up to five faculty groups consisting of SVSU undergraduates, high school students and middle/high school teachers.

The Dow Corning Foundation-SVSU-Community STEM Partnership program is designed to have a widespread impact to create positive perceptions, attitudes and knowledge of STEM. The project involves approximately 20 local middle and high school teachers per year from the Great Lakes Bay Region. Participating teachers attend a summer workshop and develop an inquiry-based project for their school, with support from SVSU Faculty and Regional STEM professionals. This allows for the creation of a network of teachers, SVSU faculty and STEM professionals to leverage our combined STEM knowledge and correct misconceptions that exist in the classroom setting. Since teachers shape so many community perceptions about STEM, the project's goal is to help the teachers represent their discipline accurately and effectively to their students.
