Report on STEM Graduation and Enrollment Trends. February 2014
Jenkins, Rick; Butler, Sharon; 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. The Arkansas Department of Higher Education uses three different sets of CIP Codes for the STEM fields. The most recent was obtained in 2012 with other versions being obtained in 2011 and before 2010. All sets of CIP Codes for the STEM fields were obtained from the website of the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) at www.ice.gov. The 2010 and earlier version contains 217 CIP Codes, the 2011 version contains 328 CIP Codes, and the 2012 version contains 422 CIP Codes. In this report: (1) all graduate and enrollment data for Academic Year 2010 and before used the 2010 version; (2) all graduate and enrollment data for Academic Year 2011 used the 2011 version; and (3) all graduate and enrollment data for Academic Year 2012 and 2012 Fall (AY2013) and Academic Year 2013 and 2013 Fall (AY2014) used the 2012 version. Therefore, this report is comparable to last year's report.
