Morgan State University Announces New Partnership with the New York Academy of Sciences
Jun 13 15
Morgan State University and the New York Academy of Sciences signed a partnership agreement to develop the next generation of STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) innovators through the Global STEM Alliance (GSA) of the New York Academy of Sciences. The agreement, signed at the site of Morgan's Patuxent Environmental and Aquatic Research Laboratory (PEARL) in St. Leonard, MD, combines the diverse vitality of MSU with the global presence of the Academy. As Maryland's premier, public urban, research university, Morgan brings a unique perspective on STEM to this partnership (e.g. its School of Education and Urban Studies was recently awarded a grant from the National Science Foundation to explore innovative ways to teach STEM in urban environments). Through its vast network of partners, the Academy will help to scale MSU's research efforts to the global community. Finally, this partnership opens the door for collaboration on joint proposals in the area of STEM education, both domestically and internationally. This partnership comes at a time when countries around the world are experiencing a well-documented shortage of STEM professionals, even though the number of STEM graduates increases every year. The New York Academy of Sciences has found that this disparity is due to a few key factors that, left unchecked, will continue into the next generation. These factors include a shortage of graduates with the soft skills employers are looking for (leadership, communication, cross-cultural competency, etc.), a lack of qualified technicians, a loss of high-skilled workers from developing countries, and untapped pools of talent - namely women and people from minority backgrounds - all leading to what the Academy has termed the global STEM paradox.
