Cultivating Cultures for Ethical STEM

Cultivating Cultures for Ethical STEM (CCE STEM)funds research projects that identify factors that are efficacious in the formation of ethical STEM researchers in all the fields of science and engineering that NSF supports.

CCE STEM solicits proposals for research that explores the following:
‘What

credit:


constitutesethicalSTEM research and practice, and which cultural and institutional contexts promote ethical STEM research and practice and why?' Factors one might consider include:
honor codes, professional ethics codes and licensing requirements, an ethic of service and/or service learning, life-long learning requirements, curriculaor memberships in organizations (e.g.Engineers without Borders)that stress social responsibility andhumanitarian goals, institutions that serve under-represented groups, institutions where academic and research integrity are cultivated at multiple levels, institutions thatcultivate ethics across the curriculum, or programs that promote group work, or do not grade.

Do certain labs have a ‘culture of academic integrity'? What practices contribute to the establishment and maintenance of ethical cultures and how can these practices be transferred, extended to, and integrated into other research and learning settings? Successful proposalstypicallyhavea comparative dimension, either between or within institutional settings that differ along these or other factors.

CCE STEM research projects will use basic research to produce knowledge about what constitutes responsible or irresponsible, just or unjust scientific practices and sociotechnical systems, and how to best instill studentswith this knowledge.

Proposals for awards from minority-serving institutions (e.g.

Tribal Colleges and Universities, Historically Black Colleges and Universities, Hispanic-Serving Institutions, Alaska Native or Native Hawaiian Serving Institutions), women's colleges, and institutions primarily serving persons with disabilities are strongly encouraged.

Proposals including international collaborations are encouraged when those efforts enhance the merit of the proposed work by incorporating unique resources, expertise, facilities or sites of international partners.

The U. S. team's international counterparts generally should have support or obtain funding through other sources.
