Our STEM Workforce and The Disruptive Innovation in Higher Education Summit

New visions and multi-faceted collaborations to creatively, efficiently, and collaboratively remaster STEM higher education and its K-12 pipeline.

The Disruptive Innovation in Higher Education Summit presented by the STEMconnector® Higher Education Council and sponsored by Cengage Learning, myCollegeOptions®, and Monsanto was a dynamic event aimed at advancing a national (US) effort to meet the education and training needs of the global STEM workforce and educate the scientists, technologists, and innovators needed for a vibrant economy. This keystone event in Washington, DC, on November 9, 2015, inaugurated the next wave of collaborative solutions to come.

The Summit is one of many events ASPB has participated in with  STEMconnector® consortium members. This event focused particularly on sharing model teaching/mentoring programs, high-impact policy, and collaborative opportunities to enhance higher education initiatives. Attention also was paid to  the importance of the K-12 pipeline that feeds effective higher education.
