Creating community stewardship
through student citizenship
Community stewardship transforms education and our future. The Southeast Michigan Stewardship Coalition (SEMIS Coalition) nurtures partnerships between schools and innovative thinkers in the community. We build communities that support visionary practices in our schools and beyond— so that students can grow into citizen-stewards of healthy ecological-social systems.

Place-based education is more than taking a fun field trip. It’s a transformative approach that makes learning real and empowers students to create positive change in their communities while mastering an integrated array of skills. Learn more.
“SEMIS Coalition is modeling, for educational activists, strategies aimed at empowering youth to become ‘solutionaries’ capable of improving the health of human and natural environments.”Dr. Gregory Smith
