SEMIS Coalition is dedicated to building impactful coalitions from grassroots to classrooms

SEMIS Members gather around a sign at Rouge Park in Detroit.

The Southeast Michigan Stewardship Coalition (SEMIS Coalition) is fundamentally about making connections and building bridges. We coordinate relationships between K12 schools and districts, environmental and grassroots organizations, researchers and scientists, government agencies, universities and other regional partners.

The SEMIS Coalition is committed to equity. Scholarships are available for teachers and schools. Priority will be given to schools with high percentages of students who qualify for free and reduced lunch.


“The SEMIS Coalition creates powerful connections between educators, schools and community partners which support the opportunities for placed based inquiry to occur.”
