Berkey Appointed to STEM Advisory Council

President Dennis Berkey has been appointed a member of Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick’s Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math Advisory Council. Established last October and chaired by Lt. Gov. Tim Murray, the panel brings together public and private sector stakeholders in the commonwealth to boost student interest in and preparation for employment in the STEM fields.

“As a mathematics educator and as president of one of the oldest and most innovative technological universities in the nation, I am acutely aware of the central role that the STEM disciplines play in our economic development,” Berkey says. “Engaging students in the wonder and fun of these disciplines at an early age enables them to develop and appreciate the analytical and innovation skills necessary for success in the careers of the future.”
