The need for a science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM)-capable workforce has increased dramatically in recent years. Building the on-ramps to STEM careers is integral to ORAU’s mission and has been since our founding 72 years ago.
ORAU has provided robust workforce development solutions for national laboratories and federal agencies that take a cradle-to-grave approach to developing well-educated and experienced STEM workers.
Our STEM expertise, leveraged through the Oak Ridge Institute for Science and Education (ORISE), a Department of Energy Asset managed by ORAU, aligns well with the priorities and objectives of the National Science and Technology Council’s Committee on STEM Education, or Co-STEM.
