Governor Whitmer’s Michigan STEM (MiSTEM) Advisory Council will host their priority setting open meeting during the STEM Ecosystems June 2022 convening. The MiSTEM Council annually makes recommendations to the Governor, Legislature, and the MI Department of Education concerning changes to the statewide STEM strategy adopted by the Council for delivering STEM education-related opportunities to pupils. A summary of the data collections from the previous year activities will be used to inform changes needed for the next budget cycle. These priorities determine the spending of $7,634,300 for STEM programming to increase student proficiency in STEM subjects and increase the number of pupils who are primed to be successful in STEM fields. This is a critical effort towards meeting our state goal of having 60% of Michigan’s workforce with a postsecondary credential by 2030.
