    Senior Fellow candidates must have extensive experience with SENCER to the point where they can guide a Leadership Fellow in the application of the theory and approach at that person’s institution, share first hand experience relevant to the Leadership Fellow’s development, and direct her/him to appropriate resources. After a one-year term as a Senior Fellow, those interested in serving as mentors the following year will be able to submit a simple renewal form.

    The Fellows program will be an intensive, one-year mentoring experience built around a specific goal that the prospective Leadership Fellow determines in his/her application. 

    Prospective Leadership Fellows are expected to provide a detailed description of the project they wish to work on over the fellowship year. During June 2018, Leadership Fellows will work with their mentors to set a timeline for the Fellowship year and will provide the plan to the national office. Senior and Leadership Fellows are expected to commit to regular communication and action based on the established project plan, and to take part in program assessment activities by the national office.

    The SENCER Center for Innovation—Southwest Spring 2018 Regional Symposium will take place at Texas Woman's University in the Ann Stuart Science Complex on February 2, 2018. The plenary keynote “Civic Engagement by Design will be delivered by Caryn McTighe Musil, Senior Scholar and Director of Civic Learning and Democracy Initiatives at the Association of American Colleges and Universities (AAC&U). Other presenters will be nationally known leaders in the SENCER (Science Education for New Civic Engagement and Responsibilities) network. This year’s format is new and refreshed—we hope it will make it easier to attend since we are starting at midmorning on Friday. The meeting is free but we ask you to register in order to assist us with planning food events.

    Many of the pressing global issues and problems of our time, including health, energy and the environment, infrastructure, security, and economic development have significant scientific and technological dimensions. In order to meet the challenges, interdisciplinary approaches—bringing together STEM, the arts/humanities, global knowledge, and a diversity of people and ideas—must be at the core of education and work in this 21st century.  In this conference, we will explore strategies to build holistic approaches to education—for both STEM and non-STEM majors (e.g,. STEM-enhanced liberal arts).  In addition, we will explore the implications of such highly interdisciplinary and global approaches for education, and the increasingly diverse and global workforce.

    Leading experts will focus on programs, strategies, and tools  for building highly interdisciplinary STEM/STEM-related programs—for majors and non-majors. Four cross-cutting approaches will be illustrated through SENCER (Science Education for New Civic Engagements and Responsibilities), Vertically Integrated Projects (VIP) (Georgia Tech), Serve-Learn-Sustain (Georgia Tech), and LSAMP (research and practice in diversity in STEM).  Participants will examine each of these cross-cutting approaches in the context of one of the following areas: engineering and technology education, energy and the environment, and medicine and health. As an outcome for the work, each participant should draft a tentative plan as to how the knowledge gained might be used to design/redesign a course, curriculum, or special project that embodies the holistic approach to STEM education and/or the work environmen.

    Additionally, the conference will include a poster session where participants can share more about related work being done at their institutions, and there will be time for 15-minute short talks about related work. These posters and talks, focused on research or program development, should be in the broad area of science and engineering for social good.  Relevant topics include, but are not limited to, the following: science and civic engagement, sustainable development (e.g., within developing countries, or high-needs communities in developed countries), energy and environmental systems, medicine and health, broadening participation of underrepresented groups in STEM (with particular attention to engineering), and building research and program communities (e.g., use of vertically integrated projects). Posters and presentations may be proposed as part of the registration process.
