Meredith College has been designated a 2015 STEM Jobs Approved College by Victory Media, the leader in successfully connecting individuals in transition with education and career opportunities, and creator of STEM Jobs media, education and career resources for students interested in science, technology, engineering and math.
The 2015 STEM Jobs Approved Colleges inaugural list is the first of its kind to rate universities, colleges, community colleges and trade schools on their responsiveness and relevance to high demand, high growth STEM occupations.
Meredith College was among more than 1,600 schools participating in the STEM Jobs survey process. Schools submitting surveys were scored on publicly available data and responses to proprietary questions around three key indicators of success: STEM job alignment, STEM job placement, and diversity in a school’s STEM programs. Meredith will be featured in the Winter 2015 issue of STEM Jobs magazine, along with the full 2015 list of STEM Jobs Approved Colleges.
“With the list of STEM Jobs Approved Colleges we’re able to help parents, students and guidance counselors evaluate how well education is translating into real-world jobs, and how responsive institutions are to meeting those demands,” said Daniel Nichols, President of STEM Jobs. “We’re pleased to showcase schools like Meredith College as a school leading the way in this area.”
A primary goal at Meredith College is to prepare its undergraduates for professions where women are underrepresented, in keeping with its status as one of the largest women’s colleges in the United States. Meredith STEM graduates enjoy consistent success, both in finding employment in their field and acceptance to graduate programs. The personal attention and guidance our students receive is reflected in their exceptional preparation for the job search process and in their applications to graduate and professional programs. In addition, internships held by students often turn into jobs.
