U-M faculty can take advantage of the Museum of Natural History resources to enrich their teaching and research outreach activities.

Please contact us as early as possible so that we may meet your needs.

Broader Impacts

The Museum can help U-M researchers meet NSF "Broader Impacts" requirements, as well as outreach requirements of other sponsors. 

 

Science Communication Fellows

Faculty and postdoctoral graduate students participate in our Science Communication Fellows program which provides specific communication skill training and opportunity for public interaction.

 

Faculty Projects

The Museum of Natural History staff work alongside faculty to develop exhibits and programs representing their research.  A recent example was "The Shape of the Universe" (2015).  Museum staff worked closely with Lydia Bieri, Associate Professor in the Department of Mathematics, to develop a temporary exhibit, planetarium piece and high school outreach program related to her research in cosmology.
