The NJ STEM Pathways Network, a public-private strategic alliance, defines and guides a statewide STEM vision for pre-K-to-workforce formal and informal learning opportunities that strengthen academic skills and inspire students; facilitates research and recommendations on STEM talent pipeline needs and barriers to success; and exposes students to the many educational pathways, experiences, and professionals that can prepare them for STEM degree programs and careers in New Jersey.
For New Jersey to attract, cultivate and retain a 21st century workforce that is engaged and supported through statewide alignment of public and private STEM educational resources, ensuring that the state remains globally competitive in STEM industries and continues its rich history of innovation.
The New Jersey Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math Pathways Network (NJSPN) is an effort to provide New Jersey’s students with the STEM education and experiences they need to succeed.
A public-private strategic alliance, the NJSPN was initiated by the New Jersey Office of the Secretary of Higher Education in 2014 to inform the alignment of STEM resources, support an education-to-workforce STEM pipeline, identify exemplary learning opportunities, and promote STEM career pathways.
