Science, technology, engineering, and math have much to offer in solving the most pressing global challenges. However, these technical fields can be best utilized when complemented with achievement of global competencies, such as proficiency in foreign languages, cultural adaptability, and knowledge of world events, and reports continue to show that U.S. students are falling behind. Join us on May 13 for a conversation with three experts in STEM fields who know firsthand their global impact and the importance of combined global/STEM education:
