NASA’s Office of Education’s mission is to advance high quality STEM education. Through this solicitation, NASA is strengthening involvement with higher education institutions to ensure that NASA can meet future workforce needs in STEM fields. Participation in NASA projects and research stimulates increasing numbers of students to continue their studies at all levels of the higher education continuum and earn advanced degrees in these critical fields.


NASA MUREP Community College Curriculum Improvement (MC3I) goals:


• Increase the number of STEM courses and curricular pathways that are available at MSCCs. • Attract, retain, and support the success of students in STEM degree programs, and subsequently in NASA-related careers. • Increase the number of students who complete STEM certificates/degrees from backgrounds that are historically underrepresented in STEM.


NASA MUREP Community College Curriculum Improvement (MC3I) objectives:


• Develop curriculum improvements in STEM vocational certificate programs, AA/AS degree programs, and/or transfer programs • Expand the STEM pipeline through the development of new or existing high school partnerships • Develop and expand curricular options in engineering
