White House Releases STEM Education Strategic Plan

December 2018

On December 4, the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy and the National Science and Technology Council’s Committee on STEM Education released a five-year STEM education strategic plan to ensure that all Americans have access to high-quality STEM education and that the United States is a global leader in STEM literacy, innovation, and employment.

The new strategy, Charting a Course for Success: America’s Strategy for STEM Education, builds on the STEM education strategic plan released in 2013 by the Obama administration and calls for future federal investment in the STEM disciplines.

The goals of the strategy include building a strong foundation of STEM literacy; increasing diversity, equity, and inclusion in STEM careers; and preparing the STEM workforce of the future. The plan highlights key pathways to achieving these goals, including developing and enriching strategic STEM partnerships, engaging students at the convergence of multiple disciplines, advancing computational literacy as a critical skill for America’s future workforce, and operating with transparency and accountability.
