Science Education Advisory Board
The Science Education Advisory Board (SEAB) is composed of leaders representing a range of higher educational perspectives and experiences.

Members include scientists with strong interests in both scientific training and teaching at many levels in the educational continuum.

The SEAB meets semiannually to addresses challenges and opportunities in scientific education in relation to current and future HHMI educational programs. It provides advice ranging from broad considerations to the specific structure of given programs.

The SEAB currently consists of eight members, appointed by the president after consultation with the vice president for science education.
