The STEM Ed PaCER program is a collaboration between Michigan State University (MSU), the Center for Native Peoples and the Environment at the State University of New York’s Environmental Science and Forestry (SUNY ESF) campus, and the Sustainable Development Institute of the College of Menominee Nation (CMN). This collaboration will build a diverse cohort of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) Education Postdoctoral Research Fellows (n=6) who will train and work on Participatory and Community-Engaged Research in the context of STEM education.
MSU researchers are reimagining fellowships to support the innovative and collaborative environment at MSU’s STEM Teaching and Learning Facility. Funded by organizations that include the National Science Foundation, the STEM Ed PaCER project designs and deploys a new model for fellowships to foster equity in research and in the selection of fellows. The STEM Ed PaCER fellowship program is for postdoc researchers interested in conducting Participatory and Community-Engaged Research with Indigenous communities. The program encourages fellows to use antiracist pedagogy and Indigenous ways of knowing.
