 The STEMconnector® team is pleased to announce our STEM Higher Education Council Town Hall on June 11, 2014 from 2:00 PM to 4:00 PM EST.  This virtual Town Hall will take place online through Google On-Air Hangouts.  

About the STEM Higher Education Council (SHEC):
SHEC’s mission is to bring focused energy to Higher Education’s leading high impact practices, increasing the emphasis on STEM pipeline-to-jobs (and what we call STEM 2.0). The SHEC will inventory and integrate current efforts whenever possible, building on the energy of others in support of boundary-breaking collaborations between higher education (two and four year institutions) and industry to achieve significant results that can be recognized and scaled-up. 

About the June 11th SHEC Town Hall:
