MoSTEMWINs will train Missourians for jobs in transportation, manufacturing, information technology, health services/health sciences, and science support.

The consortium of colleges chose to focus on STEM jobs because of those jobs’ importance to the state’s strategic plan for economic growth and positive long-term employment prospects.

The grant is part of the U.S. Department of Labor’s Trade Adjustment Assistance Community College and Career Training (TAACCCT) Grant Program that brings the state’s public two-year institutions together with the State Technical College of Missouri to improve the way they educate adult learners – especially those who have lost jobs because of the impact of foreign trade and other negative economic trends.

The Missouri Community College Association acts as program coordinator for MoStemWINS.
