LIMITED SUBMISSION – NSF Cultivating Cultures for Ethical STEM (CCE STEM)

The Office of Research is managing an internal competition for the selection of one application from Syracuse University to the NSF Cultivating Cultures for Ethical STEM (CCE STEM) program (NSF 18-532).

Summary

Cultivating Cultures for Ethical STEM (CCE STEM) funds research projects that identify (1) factors that are effective in the formation of ethical STEM researchers and (2) approaches to developing those factors in all the fields of science and engineering that NSF supports. NSF continues its support for responsible conduct for research and program development. Past solicitations have funded projects that developed ethics education materials and approaches for STEM researchers being trained as graduate students at US institutions and their affiliates. Results included courses, case studies, and modules–materials which are now available at one or more of the online ethics resource centers that NSF has funded including the following: Ethics Education Library. Illinois Institute of Technology; IDEESE: International Dimensions of Ethics Education in Science & Engineering. University of Massachusetts Amherst; National Center for Professional & Research Ethics. University of Illinois; Online Ethics Center. National Academy of Engineering.  Projects can include qualitative and/or quantitative approaches. Proposals should specify plans to deliver findings to appropriate research and educational communities and assist them to implement projects or programs based on the findings. CCE STEM awardees must share their findings with others via the Online Ethics Center for Engineering and Science (Award #1355547) and at the biennial PI meetings held at NSF. PIs are responsible for covering the expenses of participating in these PI meetings throughout the tenure of their award and should indicate this in their budget.
