The Utah Pathways to STEM (UPSTEM) Initiative, an HHMI-funded project to improve the success of all undergraduates in science, is seeking HHMI Faculty Fellows for 2018-2019.

2018-19 UPSTEM HHMI Faculty Fellows Program


The UPSTEM HHMI Faculty Fellows program is designed to build leadership capacity at the University of Utah and Salt Lake Community College around undergraduate science and math education.  UPSTEM Fellows will learn how to enhance learning for students with different backgrounds and preparation levels and gain skills necessary for catalyzing change within their own departments and institutions.  For 2018-19, we are seeking approximately 15 UPSTEM Faculty Fellows to participate in the program.

  2. Work together to develop and lead workshops/discussions on their home campus.
  3. Develop and implement a research-based lesson in a classroom or other learning environment.
  4. Present their work at an end-of-year symposium.

Fellows who complete this program will receive a $2,000 stipend from the HHMI UPSTEM grant.

3:00-5:00 pm on the following Wednesdays:  August 29; September 26; October 24; November 28; January 16; February 13; March 20; and April 17.  Location TBD.
