The Office of Governor-Elect Maggie Hassan
MANCHESTER – TOMORROW, Governor-Elect Maggie Hassan will speak at a conference on advancing science, technology, math, and engineering (STEM) higher education in New Hampshire to meet the needs of the 21st century economy.
The conference is an outgrowth of a commitment made earlier this year between the University System of New Hampshire (USNH) and the Community College System of New Hampshire (CCSNH) that sets out steps they will take together to meet the goal of increasing by 50 percent the number of STEM-educated graduates by 2020 and doubling that number by 2025.
As Governor, Maggie Hassan work to implement her “Innovate NH” jobs plan, which focuses on building the best workforce in the country, providing tax credits to businesses, and giving businesses technical assistance to help them create jobs. Hassan’s innovation plan calls for supporting the goal of increasing STEM graduates, as well as for working with teachers, local schools, higher education and the business community to ensure New Hampshire has the rigorous STEM education system it needs to prepare students to compete in the future. As Governor, Hassan will also work to make sure we include hands on-learning curriculum to engage and interest students in pursuing STEM careers.
