This volume examines STEM education, preparation, and career exploration--and the role of career and technical education (CTE) in preparing individuals for the STEM workforce. Highlighting avenues for success and exemplary practices, the volume covers topics such as: 1) Incorporating experiential learning activities for students in CTE-STEM programs, 2) Providing avenues and effective strategies for closing the skills gap for students in CTE-STEM through funding and evaluation and assessment activities, 3) Highlighting the experiences of women in CTE-STEM related programs, and 4) Implications for policy and practice. This is the 178th volume of this Jossey-Bass quarterly report series. Essential to the professional libraries of presidents, vice presidents, deans, and other leaders in today's open-door institutions, New Directions for Community Colleges provides expert guidance in meeting the challenges of their distinctive and expanding educational mission.
