RALEIGH, N.C. – This will be a week of education acronyms – IBM, WTCC, and STEM.

Community college faculty from across the state will gather in Durham on Tuesday for a summit to discuss improvements to STEM education in North Carolina. This summit is being made possible with a $10,000 donation from IBM.

The growth in student enrollments in the STEM fields is creating a need for more community college faculty with expertise and training in science, technology, engineering and math.

This summit is scheduled between 8 a.m. and 1 p.m. at the Sheraton Imperial Hotel and Convention Center and is being held in conjunction with the North Carolina Community College Faculty Association’s annual meeting.

Stephen Gold, director of worldwide marketing and global education at IBM, will provide keynote remarks.
