The U.S. is facing a shortage -- one that ties to the job market and impacts the economy but does not tend to make weekly headlines. We're talking about a shortage of people qualified to work in the fields of science, technology, engineering, mathematics and health care -- also known as STEM-H. Because of this shortage, good jobs are going unfilled, and experts predict the problem will only grow in the years to come. Industry leaders say it is crucial to expand the workforce in these areas now to ensure America's economic health. This means encouraging students of all ages to pursue educations in these disciplines. John Tyler Community College has long understood this need and works closely with industry leaders to make sure it is providing quality instruction that leads students to successful careers in STEM-H fields.
Watch this video, and learn more about this little-known but vitally important need in the STEM-H fields, and find out how John Tyler Community College is working side-by-side with industry and government in the effort to educate the workforce of today and tomorrow.
