Membership

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.

To apply to be a Core member of the Center, interested faculty members can fill out the application below. Members also will be required to upload a copy of their current CV and a photo. Candidates for Core membership may be invited to give a seminar on their educational research.

The membership and by-laws committee will review both Core faculty membership applications on a rolling basis, approximately once a month.

**Overall membership lists will be reviewed every two years and Core or Affiliate members that are no longer interested in membership in the Center will be removed from the website and listserv.  In order to rejoin the member will need to reapply via the website.**

Core Postdoc, Graduate Student, and Undergraduate

Core Postdoc, Graduate, and Undergraduate student members are engaged in STEM education research with Core Faculty members.  Alternately Core Postdoc, Graduate, and Undergraduate student members can have a significant interest in current or future STEM education research projects and be nominated by a Core faculty member. Core Postdoc, Graduate, and Undergraduate student members contribute to the Center by (1) attending most Center activities and (2) leading or assisting in the leadership of Center activities.

The membership and by-laws committee will review both Core faculty membership applications on a rolling basis, approximately once a month.

**Overall membership lists will be reviewed every two years and Core or Affiliate members that are no longer interested in membership in the Center will be removed from the website and listserv.  In order to rejoin the member will need to reapply via the website.**

Affiliate

Affiliate membership is for any Faculty, Staff, Postdoc, Graduate Student, and Undergraduate who are interested in STEM education research, but do not necessarily engage in STEM education research. Affiliate members 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 members.

The membership and by-laws committee will review both membership applications on a rolling basis, approximately once a month.

**Overall membership lists will be reviewed every two years and Core or Affiliate members that are no longer interested in membership in the Center will be removed from the website and listserv.  In order to rejoin the member will need to reapply via the website.**
