Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM)

Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM)-Africa seeks to nurture early career scientists on the continent and advance research collaborations in STEM disciplines between the University of Michigan and partner institutions in Africa that extend scientific knowledge and yield solutions to global problems. U-M’s STEM-Africa Initiative is unique among peer institutions in the U.S. in its engagement of science as a trans-Atlantic affair, and its allocation of resources dedicated to developing the study of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) in Africa. Through STEM-Africa, ASC nurtures early-career scientists on the continent and advances research collaborations that extend scientific knowledge and yield solutions to global problems.
