Column: Supporting educational pipelines for future leaders
At Palo Alto College, our collective focus is to ensure our students have every resource to be successful throughout their educational journey and to be prepared for their future endeavors after they graduate. Our students are the future workforce of San Antonio, and we know that as our city grows, our workforce demands will increase.
According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, employment in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) occupations across the country grew by 10.5 percent over a six-year period. In an effort to support the growing demands in STEM fields in San Antonio, Palo Alto College has spent several years strategically planning concentrated efforts to promote STEM in our community.
