Maine EPSCoR at the University of Maine, Maine Campus Compact, and SENCER-Maine work together to recruit, build, and strengthen the network of Maine faculty leaders who are incorporating the SENCER model into their cirriculum. Through our "Strategic Synergies" project, we are supporting college faculty and professional educators to develop locally-relevant STEM course to engage students in community issues and activities.

SENCER (Science Education for New Civic Engagements and Responsibilities) is an NSF-supported program that applies the science of learning to the learning of science, all to expand civic capacity and is the signature program of the National Center for Science and Civic Engagement (NCSCE). SENCER courses and programs aim to connect science, technology, engineering, and mathematics content to critical local, national, and global challenges.
