Vision

Mid-Columbia STEM 2030

70% of
Mid-Columbia
students will earn
post-secondary
credentials
by age 26.

Our STEM-proficient workforce will be nearly 100% homegrown and include a high percentage of groups typically underserved in STEM careers. Our schools—elementary through university—will be regarded as national models for business, labor and community involvement, as well as centers for innovative STEM learning. STEM professionals will remain in the region after retirement to be active STEM volunteers, shaping future generations.
