Vision

The South Jersey STEM & Innovation Partnership is a diverse community of individuals, institutions and industry. We collaborate to ensure an inclusive STEM culture that champions access to innovation, opportunity, equity, and lifelong learning. We are making South Jersey the “Go-To” place for STEM Talent.

  • New Jersey is ranked #12 in the nation for the number of current STEM or STEM-related jobs, and by the year 2018, more than 269,000 STEM jobs will need to be filled.
  • Of the more than 6 million New Jersey  high school students, only 1.6 million are interested in pursuing a STEM career.
  • The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics projects that, during the period 2010 - 2020, employment in Science and Engineering occupations will grow by 18.7%, compared to 14.3% for all occupations.
