The Whiting School of Engineering made a significant investment in STEM educational outreach in 2010 by hiring a full-time assistant dean to manage and grow the CEO.

As national and local attention to STEM education has grown, the CEO has brought together other STEM practitioners across JHU to coordinate and collaborate in an effort to better serve our community.
