A project of the National Center for Science and Civic Engagement, GLISTEN (the Great Lakes Innovative Stewardship Through Education Network) engages undergraduate students in environmental service-learning components of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) coursework on their campuses. These components enhance the capacity of governmental and community-based organizations involved in restoration and stewardship of the Great Lakes ecosystem.
These activities enhance the STEM education of undergraduates in higher education institutions. Learn More>
These institutions, along with their community-based partners, are organized into Collaborative Clusters in the 8 Great Lakes states. Learn More>
