National Action Council for Minorities in Engineering: 2013 National Symposium

2013 NACME National Symposium

Take Action:  Changing STEM Education for URMS Through Research and Policy

Tuesday, October 1st thru Thursday, October 3rd

NACME will be kicking off its year-long 40th Anniversary Celebration beginning with the 2013 NACME National Symposium, which will be held in Washington, D.C. During this event, NACME seeks to achieve greater impact by being the catalyst for the large-scale changes that are required to activate the hidden workforce of young women and men who have traditionally been underrepresented minorities (URMs) — African Americans, American Indians, and Latinos— in STEM careers.  

NACME will present the emerging evidence from research and program evaluation studies on programs and practives that are succeeding in increasing the representation of successful URMS in STEM

The research findings will shape policy directions for key stakeholders, including state and federal policymakers, national and local networks, communities, college and university faculty and administrators, K-12 educators, employers, nonprofits, philanthropy, and many others.

Transforming STEM Education: Inquiry, Innovation, Inclusion, and Evidence

Network for Academic Renewal Conference
October 31 - November 2, 2013
San Diego, California

Transforming STEM Education:  Inquiry, Innovation, Inclusion and Evidence will bring together forward-thinking STEM faculty and academic
leaders from all sectors of higher education to share innovations, evidence, and practical strategies for succeeding in the dual STEM challenges of this era:

1.  Reversing the dramatic U.S. loss of needed talent in STEM disciplines, using evidence-based practices that increase persistence and achievement
for all students, with particular attention to students from underrepresented groups

2.  Ensuring that all STEM graduates build--from the outset of their studies--the multidisciplinary knowledge, research skills, and mindsets needed to address
the complex challenges to be faced in every sphere of society
