“There are few things as fundamental to the American Dream or as essential for America’s success as a good education. This has never been more true than it is today. At a time when our children are competing with kids in China and India, the best job qualification you can have is a college degree or advanced training. If you do have that kind of education, then you’re well prepared for the future — because half of the fastest growing jobs in America require a Bachelor’s degree or more” (President Obama, April 24, 2009) and the America COMPETES Act (P.L. 110-69) are mandates that show an awareness that the future of this country’s social and economic well-being and stability depends on education of a technologically-competent workforce. How can each institution of higher education be responsive to this call for action? I will discuss strategies that have had increased research by faculty, students and have broadened participation in STEM careers.
