Michigan State University is teaming up with the Michigan Department of Labor and Economic Opportunity to create new pathways for individuals with disabilities — particularly those from underrepresented racial groups — to pursue high-demand careers in science, technology, engineering, mathematics or medicine, known as STEMM.
Gov. Gretchen Whitmer announced the partnership through a $15.8 million grant from the U.S. Department of Education.
“The COVID-19 pandemic exposed and exacerbated far-reaching issues and disparities experienced by individuals with disabilities and other marginalized groups,” Whitmer said. “By addressing these disparities head-on and developing demand-driven career pathways, we can ensure access to good, promising and inclusive opportunities for all Michiganders. Together, we can usher in a new era of prosperity for our families, communities, and small businesses.”
To accomplish the project's mission, several positions need to be filled. A list of the open positions can be found through the link below:
