Andrews a STEM Jobs Approved University
Rigorous survey concludes Andrews strong in STEM
Andrews University is pleased to announce that it has been designated a 2015 STEM JobsSM Approved College by Victory Media. A leader in successfully connecting individuals in transition with education and career opportunities, Victory Media is the creator of STEM JobsSM media, education and career resources for students interested in science, technology, engineering and math. The 2015 STEM JobsSM Approved Colleges inaugural list is the first of its kind to rate universities, colleges, community colleges and trade schools on their responsiveness and relevance to high demand, high growth STEM occupations.
Andrews was among over 1,600 schools participating in the STEM JobsSM survey process. Schools submitting surveys were scored on publicly available data and responses to proprietary questions around three key indicators of success: STEM job alignment, STEM job placement, and diversity in a school’s STEM programs. The assessment and rights to the STEM Jobs ApprovedSM Colleges designation were available to qualifying schools for free. Andrews will be featured in the Winter 2015 issue of “STEM JobsSM“ magazine, along with the entire 2015 list of STEM JobsSM Approved Colleges.
“Being officially approved as a 2015 STEM Jobs university reaffirms what we are doing in STEM here at Andrews,” says Keith Mattingly, dean of the Colleges of Arts & Sciences. “It assures our students that they are receiving a quality STEM education and affirms our professors that they are providing a recognized great value. We are proud of the mentorship of students as well as the research and creative scholarship that comes from our STEM disciplines and this approval gives a positive endorsement to our success.”
“With the list of STEM JobsSM Approved Colleges we’re able to help parents, students and guidance counselors evaluate how well education is translating into real-world jobs, and how responsive institutions are to meeting those demands,” said Daniel Nichols, President of STEM JobsSM. “We’re pleased to showcase schools like Andrews University, a school leading the way in this area.”
