Report on STEM Graduation and Enrollment Trends. June 2012
Jenkins, Rick; Mitchell, Suzanne
Arkansas Department of Higher Education
The purpose of this report on Arkansas STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) program activity is to inform education and policy makers about the need to prepare and graduate more students with degrees in STEM related fields as defined by the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). Arkansas is witnessing a significant shortfall in its ability to meet the STEM education needs of its students which will have tremendous implications for the state's scientific and engineering workforce needed for the next decade. Addressing this issue is absolutely essential for the continued economic success of Arkansas. All Arkansas citizens must have the basic scientific, technological, and mathematical knowledge to make informed personal choices, to develop human capital, and to thrive in the increasingly technological global marketplace. This report provides five (5) years of data and it uses the new list of CIP Codes for all 5 years. Therefore, this report will not be comparable to reports from past years.
