Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics Advising Commission

We welcome the participation of all advisors in the Science, Technology, Engineering and & Math (STEM) fields. The commission focuses on improving advising for students by finding answers to these challenges: highly structured curricula, importance of accreditation issues, student attitudes toward college, poorly defined learning objectives, high level of stress among students, critical diversity and equity issues, academic support concerns, competitive nature of admissions, and the high percentage of international and ESL students, as well as other challenges as defined by members of the Commission.

The STEM Commission values contributions from new and experienced professionals, faculty, and administrators interested in these issues. We are also interested in seeking input from all institutional types. We are especially looking for those interested in enhancing the Commission’s reputation for having active NACADA members at the local, state, regional, national and international levels.
