7 Governor’s STEM Advisory Council and IMSEP: Q & A Q: So, what is the relationship between IMSEP and the new Governor’s STEM Advisory Council/Governor’s STEM Initiative? A: The IMSEP team is now charged with managing programming and administration for the Governor’s STEM Advisory Council in addition to maintaining IMSEP programming. The opportunity resulted from recognition of the excellent work done by the dozens of professionals who’ve contributed to our good, demonstrable, efficient programs. Q: How does this development change IMSEP? A: The IMSEP will now become the programmatic arm of the Governor’s STEM Advisory Council. We will be under the umbrella of the Council. The IMSEP will continue to manage programs, fulfill grant-funded projects, convene stakeholders via forums and summits, facilitate committees and working groups, interface with allied organizations, and perform most other functions our statewide partners and constituents are counting on. Q: What about IMSEP governance? A: For the remainder of this academic year ( ) the IMSEP will continue to be overseen and advised by an Executive Board of inter-university faculty. Meanwhile and in parallel, the Governor’s STEM Advisory Council and its Executive Committee, co-chaired by Lt. Governor Reynolds and UNI President Ben Allen, has already begun meeting and working too. After this year, the IMSEP team will be accountable solely to the Governor’s STEM Advisory Council, as its programmatic arm. All decisions regarding programming will then become the responsibility of the Council. Q: What about IMSEP funding? A: For this year, all commitments to existent programs will be seen through. Next year, all funding decisions are up to the Governor’s STEM Council as they recommend how best to channel resources to achieve the goals of the Council. Grant-funded programming at IMSEP (e.g., NSF-funded Externships and Noyce Scholars) will continue through completion of the grants. Q: How can we keep up with the changes to come and offer input? A: This newsletter is the best source for staying updated. We invite questions (and advice!) via our

Where are the resources? f. When can we get there? [a timeline] g. What will the Council need to do? h. What will be our success indicators? [metrics/outcomes] i. What’s the future implication? j. Appendix: committee. Plan development process. Pertinent references. For Infrastructure – suggested product: Scale-up plan to be implemented in FY2013 (deliver early Spring to Exec. Comm.). Regional Networks plan to be implemented in FY2013 (deliver early Spring to Exec. Comm.)

22 Share the Carnevale report with kids, parents- Share the Battelle Iowa studies on IT, BioScience, and Advanced Manufacturing opportunities with kids, parents Challenge all kids (especially ethnic and racial minorities) into Algebra II and Physics – “gateway” courses Help your math and science teachers deliver PBL and inquiry
