Seminole State named a STEM Jobs Employer

More than 40 percent of Seminole State's faculty have degrees in STEM fields and teach in STEM areas.

Just three months after being recognized as a STEM Jobs Approved College, Seminole State College of Florida has been named a 2015 STEM Jobs Approved Employer. This honor, given by Victory Media Inc., is awarded to companies that demonstrate a commitment to providing STEM career opportunities.

The 2015 STEM Jobs Approved Employers list is the first of its kind to rate companies on their responsiveness to creating and filling high-demand, high-growth STEM occupations.

Companies that participated in the STEM Jobs survey process were scored on publicly available data and their responses to questions related to success indicators, including STEM job hiring and career opportunities, workforce diversity in STEM positions and outreach to and alignment with STEM education programs.  

Seminole State will be featured in the winter 2015 issue of STEM Jobs magazine.

"We are honored and pleased to receive the designation of a STEM Jobs Approved Employer, which will allow Seminole State to attract talented faculty and staff into these key roles," says Mae Kline, associate vice president of Human Resources. "STEM careers are critical to the successful future of our College and the viability of the Florida economy."

More than 40 percent of Seminole State's faculty have degrees in STEM fields and teach in STEM areas. Of faculty members with STEM degrees, 53 percent are women. The College supports employee advancement by offering numerous professional development opportunities and tuition reimbursement for continuing education.
