ANN ARBOR, MICHIGAN — The School of Information at the University of Michigan aims to prepare socially-engaged information professionals and create knowledge, systems, and institutions for the information age. In 2012, MacArthur and the National Science Foundation partnered with the University to convene a group of education funders to gauge their interest in building a new network to support innovations in learning, and found strong interest in innovations in learning-related science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM). This grant will be used to carry out a set of activities--research, meetings, and communications--to build a new funders network that supports innovations in STEM learning.
The MacArthur Foundation awarded University of Michigan School of Information $150,000 between 2010 and 2013.
