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 5 faculty groups consisting of SVSU undergraduates, high school students, and middle/high school teachers.

The Dow Corning Foundation/SVSU STEM Community Partnership targets attitudes about STEM in the local community. The project involves about 20 local middle and high school teachers per year from the surrounding community. One of the objectives of the project is to create a network of teachers, SVSU University Faculty and Dow Corning Professionals to leverage our combined knowledge about STEM to correct perceptions that can be inaccurate or damaging. Since teachers shape so many of the perceptions of the community about STEM, the project's goal is to help the teachers represent their discipline accurately and effectively to their students.
