The NSF STEP PIs are faculty members at Bowling Green State University and Owens Community
College from the College of Arts & Science and the College of Education and Human development.
They wrote the NSF STEP proposal in the Fall of 2007 and since June 2008 have guided the
direction of the grant through bi-weekly meetings and monthly meetings with the SETGO scholars.
Members of the Executive Committee are charged to direct all aspects of the project with the assistance of the Program Manager. They form four sub-committees viz., Selection & Recruitment; Public Relations & Special Events; Curriculum & Programming; Grants & Development.
The External Advisory consists of four members of the wider community with interest in math and
science education. The committee is charged to provide advice to the program. Members read quarterly and annual reports, meet twice a year, and make suggestions for improvement.
The Internal Advisory consists of six members of the university community who are interested in educating mathematicians and scientists, and enhancing scientific literacy. The committee is charged to provide advice to the project, and to facilitate dissemination about the project throughout the institutions. They people meet on a regular basis and provide guidance on the direction of program activities.
