STEM Digital Village
The STEM Digital Village (SDV) is an online community managed by the LU STEM group. It was conceived as a result of lessons learned during the first LINC program that was funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF), as well as during years of teaching college level STEM courses.
A subsequent, Continuation NSF grant continued funding of the LINC project through 2014. The Continuation grant enabled the LU LINC team to build STEM Digital Village into the tool that was envisioned early on during the first phase of the LINC project.
SDV’s goals are 1) to serve as a Public Relations tool in facilitating an increase in the numbers of students who enroll at LU in STEM disciplines and 2) to provide a community that supports retention of STEM scholars.
SDV has emerged as a major communication tool and information warehouse that not only supports the LINC program, but contains information and tools that stand to benefit STEM scholars worldwide.
The STEM Digital Village story is told on the following pages.
