MSU student awarded ARIS fellowship

The Center for Advancing Research Impacts in Society is pleased to announce Trina Van Schyndel, Michigan State University, Higher, Adult and Lifelong Education; and membership director, Imagining America: Artists and Scholars in Public Life, is a fellowship award recipient.

As an ARIS Fellow, Van Schyndel will work on the project “Resources for Interdisciplinary Teams Seeking to Include Community-engaged Practitioners and Scholars in the Arts, Design, and Humanities.”

The 2022 class of ARIS Fellows includes one individual and six team fellowships, awarded at $5,000 and $7,500 respectively. The goal of the program is to increase the quality and availability of scholarship and resources about research impacts to improve design and practice.

“The ARIS community brings together professionals with a rich diversity of backgrounds and professional practices. The suite of 2022 Fellows projects reflects that diversity,” said Julie Risien, associate director of the STEM Research Center at Oregon State University and coInvestigator of ARIS. 

The 2022 Fellows will conduct collaborative research and synthesize available evidence to create tools and resources that support the research community to advance the quality of their research impacts work. Fellows work in coordination with each other and ARIS as they build their own professional capacities. Their projects will undergo external peer review and will be presented to the ARIS community at the Annual ARIS Summit and at other workshops delivered by ARIS and cooperating organizations.

Risien anticipates the 2022 Fellows will develop tools to support engagement and partnerships in the humanities, arts, design and science policy; provide guidance for scalable inclusive science communication practice and integration of undergraduate education with broader impacts; and improve cyber security through media literacy.
