The University of California, San Diego is a top ten public research university that is transforming lives, shaping new disciplines and advancing the frontiers of knowledge. UC San Diego and our region are well known for strength in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM), but it is vital that we build a pipeline of skilled, educated workers in these fields for San Diego's knowledge-economy. It is predicted that 16 of the 20 occupations with the largest projected growth in the next decade are STEM related – and that is why outreach efforts that partner community and university resources are key to ensuring the pipeline success.
