In working support student growth in sustainability fields, MCSI supports several cross-disciplinary experiences for students to connect with communities around the University. In addition to the unique educational experiences these opportunities create for students, K-12 students also engage with STEM topics through MCSI partnerships.
MCSI is concerned with how our supported research impacts society, a focus on the Broader Impact than just collecting data in communities. Utilizing the framework published by Advancing Research in Society (ARIS) better guides research to align with National Science Foundation (NSF) standards.
