Northeast State Community College’s STEM program is an effort to address the growing, national need for increased interest and enrollment in the STEM areas of study.  For many years, Northeast State has participated in partnerships to recruit students to these and other academic areas of study. 

Now, in response to national and local workforce needs as well as a statewide Tennessee initiative, Northeast State is focused on efforts to provide opportunities in STEM areas and/or create interest in these areas.  STEM coursework is now available to area high school students at Northeast State's main campus and off-campus teaching sites. Other efforts and strategies are being developed through regional partnerships to provide more STEM opportunities for qualified students.
