Since 2007, the Southwest Indiana STEM (SwISTEM) Resource Center, housed within the Pott College of Science, Engineering, and Education
at the University of Southern Indiana (USI), has developed and implemented initiatives targeted at increasing STEM interest and proficiency among K-16 students in the Southwest Indiana region. With a wide array of student-centered outreach
activities, teacher professional development opportunities, and a robust equipment lending service, the forecast for STEM achievement in the Southwest Indiana region has never looked better!
The strategic planning document was developed by members of area
business/industry, higher education, informal institutions of education,
and K-12 schools. Its contents will be used to guide the direction of the
organization as the Resource Center continues to grow and fulfill its vision
of developing a STEM-ready workforce.
