Steven L. Berg

I am a professor, author, and artist who has a keen interest in quality education and student transformation. My current position is at Schoolcraft College, but I have taught at two other community colleges as well as two universities. In addition to my work at the college, I am President of the Michigan Chapter of the National Organization for Student Success (NOSSMi) and serve on the Steering Committee for the Liberal Arts Network for Development (LAND).

My Promoting Student Transformation at the Community College was published on 3 Febraury 2020. It provides practical advice on how professors can promote student transformation. Although the book comes out of my experience as a community college professor, the content is relevant to my university colleagues. My publisher released the book online for free.

My art is primarily in the tradition of photomontague. Much of my art involves social commentary concerning education, religion, and social-justice as well as the themes of compassion and transformation.


I am a professor of English and History at Schoolcraft College where I have been teaching since 1999. I am active in a variety of campus events including the International Institute. I attend as many campus events as possible often with my students. Outside my office, I established a Little Free Libtary where we also provide fresh fruit and single serving meals. I am also a donor to the Schoolcraft College Foundation.



I serve as President of the Michigan Chapter of the National Organization for Student Success (NOSSMi). "The National Organization for Student Success: Michigan Chapter (NOSSMi) advances student success by working to help underprepared students prepare, prepared students advance, and advanced students excel. We are a network of post-secondary faculty, administrators, staff, and students who are committed to student success by focusing on learning as a life-long process."



I represent Schoolcraft College on the Steering Committee for the Liberal Arts Network for Development (LAND). One of my LAND respondibilities is coordinating the LAND Student Scholars Competition.



I regulary write about educational issues in By the Speaking of This Truth. In the blog, I reflect on my behavior and thoughts and actions while providing positive contributions to important discussions taking place in academia.
