*2016-2017 AmeriCorps VISTA positions now open!*

Maine Campus Compact (MCC), with support from Maine Experiential Program to Stimulate Competitive Research (EPSCoR), recently released the results of two surveys finding ample opportunities and motivation to strengthen science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) education through K-20 collaboration. In 2014, MCC conducted a statewide landscape analysis to assess current STEM education practices, challenges, and opportunities. It also investigated ways to advance STEM education through collaborative opportunities between higher education, K-12 schools, and community partners in Maine. Seventy school districts and twenty higher education institutions throughout the state received one of two surveys: one for secondary schools and the other for higher education. In total, surveys were sent to 573 secondary schools (SS) and higher education (HE) educators, administrators, and staff. To read more click here

We seek to transform our campuses in ways that develop better informed, active citizen problem-solvers, stronger communities, and a more just democratic society.

We believe that our campuses must be vital agents and architects of a flourishing democracy.
