Serve as a STEM-NET Faculty Fellow

With the aim to make the CSU a worldwide leader in increasing the pipeline, preparation, graduation and employment of outstanding, diverse STEM students, the newly created STEM-NET (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics Network) Faculty Fellows program will enable CSU STEM leaders to share expertise and leverage system-wide opportunities to foster the implementation of global best practices in research, pedagogy and learning as related to the STEM fields within the system.

Applications are currently open to full-time tenured or tenure-track faculty with a disciplinary association with science, technology, engineering or math, and who are active disciplinary and/or pedagogical scholars.

STEM-NET is the latest of the CSU's 10 multi-campus collaborations and may potentially constitute the most extensive of affinity groups, since all 23 campuses are members.
