The two-year grant was facilitated by Clarinda Barnett-Harrison, director of the Business Engagement Center, and Ann Serra, senior foundation and corporate giving officer, in partnership with the faculty leads Line van Nieuwstadt and Michael Lachance.

“Securing resources for programs like STEMstart and Math Circle not only provide capacity-building for important UM-Dearborn initiatives, it also fulfills the university’s metropolitan vision to support community building through K-12 STEM partnerships,” said Barnett-Harrison, BEC executive director.
