Michigan, together with business, education, and community partners, is embarking on a journey to create a MiSTEM
Network throughout the state. This opportunity grew out of Governor Snyder’s MiSTEM Advisory Council
recommendation to make Michigan a world leader in STEM education.
Our mission is to be the catalyst for equitable access to authentic STEM experiences in every community in Michigan.
Our vision is to empower the next generation of innovators to create more inclusive and prosperous communities of tomorrow.
The Council report lists four pillars as necessary components to establish a system that will produce STEM-equipped
students and educators. The work of the MiSTEM Network is to build on existing STEM networks to create a STEM
ecosystem that supports and implements the components outlined in the four pillars.
