The Community College Presidents' Initiative in STEM (CCPI-STEM), funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF), is designed to further engage community college leadership in the support of regional STEM education and workforce development through NSF Advanced Technological Education (ATE) grants. There is a national clarion call for a diverse workforce with STEM backgrounds for the millions of employment opportunities that remain unfilled. We need your help: The nation's community colleges can fill this urgent workforce gap!

Join us for the first of a series of webcasts that will highlight the vision and mission of the grant with a focus on the two-year sector. You will hear about the various opportunities to participate in regional dialogue and collaboration, receive support to learn more about the NSF's ATE funding program, and join a growing community college network designed to address STEM education and workforce needs.
