Membership Options for Faculty

Core Faculty

Core Faculty are engaged in STEM education research by pursuing extramural funding and/or publishing in peer-reviewed journals. Specifically, core faculty have demonstrated success in extramural funding and/or publication of STEM education research within the past five years. Alternatively, core faculty have an appointment that carries with it the expectation for funding and publication in STEM education research.

Core faculty contribute to the Center by (1) attending most Center activities and (2) leading or assisting in the leadership of Center activities, and (3) for grants that involve collaborative efforts of SEER Center members, generating IDC returns for the Center, on a grant-by-grant basis as negotiated with their department heads or Deans.

Core faculty can hold either full or adjunct appointments at UGA.
Candidates for Core membership may be invited to give a seminar on their educational research.

The membership and by-laws committee will review both faculty membership applications twice a year.
**Review date will be September 1st and February 1st. Overall membership will be reviewed every two years. Members that are no longer interested in membership in the Center will be removed from the website and listserv. In order to rejoin, please reapply via the website.**

Affiliate Faculty

Affiliate Faculty are interested in STEM education research, but do not necessarily engage in STEM education research.

Affiliate faculty contribute to the center by attending on average two Center activities per year and by allowing education research to be conducted in their classes and/or trying new classroom practices for which efficacy has been empirically demonstrated. There is no expectation of IDC returns from affiliate faculty.

The membership and by-laws committee will review Affiliate faculty membership applications twice a year.
