The Ocean Studies Board of the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine will be exploring questions related to the future workforce in ocean science, including where will the jobs be and do we have the right programs and curricula to educate the next generation. The National Academies Board on Higher Education and Workforce (BHEW) will provide an overview of their ongoing activities, including a study underway on Revitalizing Graduate STEM Education. In addition to the briefing on BHEW activities, we will have speakers discuss the commonalities and differences of the mainstream STEM and ocean science education and workforce issues.
