In collaboration, Bellevue College and North Seattle College have been awarded a $300,000 National Science Foundation Improving Undergraduate STEM Education Grant. The project is called C-JUSTICE and aims to improve STEM education by supporting community college faculty in creating course modules that teach complex problem solving through disciplinary practice, civic engagement, equity, and systems thinking. The goals of the C-JUSTICE Project are to: (1) create a faculty professional development model that supports practical and scalable STEM teaching through course modules focused on climate justice, civic engagement, and equity and (2) provide innovative STEM education that improves STEM teaching and learning for all students, broadens participation of women and racial and ethnic groups underrepresented in STEM, and prepares all students to be citizens and scientists ready for 21st century challenges. This project builds on Bellevue College’s and North Seattle College’s ongoing Climate Justice in the Curriculum projects and efforts, focused on faculty professional development and building a
climate justice lesson archive.
