The Regional STEM Networks bring together public and private K-12 schools and districts, public and private higher education institutions, business and industry, regional employment/workforce investment boards and non-profit organizations around STEM to address local education and workforce needs. Each network is managed by an executive director and housed in either an institution of higher education or a regional employment board. As a regional system, managed by the Department of Higher Education under the direction of the Governor’s STEM Advisory Council, the networks play a key function in implementing the goals of STEM Plan 2.0 by coordinating and promoting collaborations of STEM programs, projects and partners. The networks regularly communicate information about funding opportunities, events, announcements, and training sessions. Funding for the networks comes from the STEM Pipeline Fund. For more information about the purpose and function of the networks, refer to this document: Recommended Functions and Related Performance Criteria for the STEM Networks.
NOTE: The Department of Higher Education has issued a Request for Proposal (RFP) that will allow for the refunding of five STEM Networks. Check back soon for additional information and view the RFP here.
