Overview:
 
The state of Nevada has a compelling need for basic education and workforce training for its citizens. Nevada has distinct regional differences, both economically and demographically.  The distribution of the population in Nevada makes it simultaneously one of the most urban states in the nation and one of the most rural.  
 
The System Sponsored Programs and EPSCoR office is part of the Nevada System of Higher Education (NSHE). Our mission is to promote collaboration and multidisciplinary learning among NSHE institutions and to enable alignment of our efforts with the needs of the state to increase research competitiveness. Our goal is to create new opportunities in Nevada for workforce development and to promote the development of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) disciplines for the state.
 
The Nevada STEM Pipeline has been developed as a resource to engage students, teachers, parents, and the community in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics education. This effort is at the forefront to increase the number of students interested in pursuing college degrees with the overarching goal of strengthening our future workforce and economic development in the state.  
 
Goals:
  • Increase statewide participation in Nevada STEM by providing coordinated information and educational "pipeline" opportunities.
  • Increase access to STEM learning opportunities within Nevada for all students, including women and those from underrepresented groups such as Native American, Hispanic American/Latinos, Asian/Pacific Islander, and African American populations.
  • Provide a statewide clearinghouse of STEM pipeline programs available to K-20 students, teachers, and other interested stakeholders in the state of Nevada.
