SENCER - Science Education for New Civic Engagements and Responsibilities
SENCER stands for Science Education for New Civic Engagements and Responsibilities, a comprehensive faculty development and science education reform project funded by the National Science Foundation. SENCER engages student interest in the sciences and mathematics by supporting the development of undergraduate courses and academic programs that teach “to” basic science and mathematics “through” complex, capacious, and unsolved public issues. SENCER works to encourage and support faculty development and campus leadership through a coordinated set of activities and programs. Throughout the year, numerous national, regional, and local symposia and outreach activities sponsored or co-sponsored by SENCER offer opportunities for SENCER alumni to report on what has been learned and to invite participation by faculty who are newly attracted to the SENCER approach.
