STEM Education Coalition Supports U.S. News STEM Solutions

Washington, DC—  The STEM Education Coalition is proud to announce its support of U.S. News STEM Solutions 2014—The National Leadership Conference, taking place in Washington, D.C. from April 23-25. For the third year, leaders in education, policy and workforce development will convene to advance the national STEM agenda.

The longstanding mission of the STEM Education Coalition is to inform federal and state policymakers on the critical role that science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) education plays in U.S. competitiveness and future economic prosperity.

This year’s theme, Where Employers and Educators Meet, exemplifies the mission of the U.S. News STEM Solutions conference – to engage a broad community of educators, policymakers and business leaders in finding solutions to a problem that is at the heart of America’s economic recovery.

As a recognized leader in STEM and supporting partner of the conference, the STEM Education Coalition helps shed light on STEM issues and plays an active role in the development and evolution of national policies to address the challenges our nation faces in educating the future STEM workforce. The involvement of the STEM Education Coalition ensures that policymakers remain focused on the close linkage between our nation’s economic prosperity in the modern global economy and the strong STEM skills of our students and future innovators.

U.S. News & World Report has enthusiastically welcomed the organization’s involvement. “We are proud to have the support of organizations who recognize the urgency of making progress on STEM,” says Brian Kelly, editor and chief content officer. “We look forward to their valuable insights and involvement at U.S. News STEM Solutions.”
