The many concurrent dialogues among business and academia are leading to partnerships and innovations that show great promise. But many agree that progress on this front isn’t happening fast enough. Top officials from several major companies will define and discuss programs to create and ensure a STEM-capable workforce, including new research from an executive roundtable convened in February by U.S. News & World Report, STEMconnector, and the University of Phoenix.
