What is NACME

Our Mission

To ensure American competitiveness in a flat world by leading and supporting the national effort to

expand U.S. capability through increasing the number of successful African American, American

Indian, and Latino women and men in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM)

education and careers.

Our Vision

An engineering workforce that looks like America.

Our Goal

To Engineer Opportunity for Minorities in STEM

Our Purpose

Through partnerships with like-minded entities, we serve as a catalyst to increase the proportion of

African American, American Indian, and Latino women and men in STEM careers. We inspire and

encourage excellence in engineering education and career development toward achieving a

diverse and dynamic American workforce.

Our Beliefs

We believe that diversity drives innovation. We believe in the concept of the “learning

organization,” a community in which each member is encouraged and assisted to grow and

develop. We support a NACME culture that is informed by our mission. We strive to be effective

team members who are committed to doing our best work and to delivering the best results for our

partners along the continuum from middle school to workforce entry.

NACME STEM Integration Model

NACME will integrate existing program elements into a unified continuum that

leverages existing partnerships for students to move along the NACME

(13)

13 © Copyright 2013 The National Action Council for Minorities in Engineering, Inc. (NACME)

The goal of the NACME STEM Integration Model is to facilitate a

comprehensive pathway of URMs to engineering careers beginning in

middle school. Our objectives include the following:

To develop regional partnerships of institutions along the NACME

Continuum

To ensure that partners are invested in the NACME brand

To evaluate each program based on expectations outlined in the

Memorandum of Understanding

To increase operational efficiency and effectiveness of linkage programs

To target funding opportunities for the integration model

To ensure evaluation is integrated across all linkage programs

The entire NACME staff was engaged in the process of developing the NACME

STEM Integration Model utilizing an NSF-based program logic model.
