STEM: Science Technology Engineering Mathematics Education

  • STEM, which focuses on students’ engagement and skills in science, technology, engineering, and math, is an important investment for the nation. In the 21st century, the projected growth in demand for mathematicians and scientists must be matched by a commensurate growth in the number of students studying and exceling in the subjects. Greater student participation in STEM will improve the country’s readiness for an evolving economy of the future.

    Higher Ed Spotlight: 1862 and 1890 Land-Grant University Contributions to the STEM Workforce

    What is a Land-Grant University1? A land-grant university (LGU) is an institution designated by a state or Congress to receive the benefits of the Morrill Acts of 1862 and 1890. The original mission of these institutions was to teach agriculture and mechanical arts so that working-class and African American citizens could obtain a liberal, practical education. Although 1862 and 1890 LGUs share a similar mission, 1862 LGUs are predominantly white institutions (PWIs), whereas all 1890 LGUs are historically black colleges and universities (HBCUs). Collectively, LGUs are positioned to prepare diverse, well-trained students to enter the science, technology, mathematics, and engineering (STEM) workforce.

    Academic Recognition of Military Experience in STEM Education

    Academic Recognition of Military Experience in STEM Education takes an in-depth look at how successfully increasing acceptance of military credit recommendations at institutions of higher education can be achieved through federal agencies, workforce development experts, and other key stakeholders using available resources and tools to build degree pathways that accurately map military training to STEM courses helping eliminate the stigma surrounding award of credit for prior-learning, and boosting support among leaders and institutions for increased acceptance of military credit recommendations. This approach will lead to the development of best practices and, ultimately, increased STEM attainment and veterans’ education success.
