CHARLESTON, S.C.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--STEM Premier announces an exciting partnership with Vincennes University (VU) to provide students access to the online platform that showcases academic and technical skills and connects them with companies and job opportunities. The partnership kicks off this week with a comprehensive roll-out of the STEM Premier platform to all students at Vincennes University.
STEM Premier acts as a virtual hub, bringing together students ages 13+, with colleges, universities, companies, and organizations. Students showcase their talents through digital profiles, discover resources and scholarships, receive guidance and coaching, and connect with colleges and companies who can view student profiles and recruit them directly via internal messaging.
"Vincennes University has been connecting our students and corporate employer partners for years. STEM Premier will provide the whole spectrum of our students – high school dual credit, early college, traditional, work and learn, and adult learners – with greater access to opportunities with Indiana businesses," said David A. Tucker, vice president for Workforce Development and Community Services for Vincennes University.
The partnership will particularly benefit statewide secondary students in the University’s early college and clients throughout Indiana enrolled in Vincennes University’s Business and Industry programs. STEM Premier’s platform will be customized with key links that will help ensure a smooth transition to internships, work-and-learn opportunities and full-time employment with industry partners that include the state’s leading companies.
“As Indiana’s first college and a premier learning institution, Vincennes is dedicated to recruiting great students and helping them be successful as they earn their degree at the University and enter the workforce. That matches with STEM Premier perfectly,” said Dr. Donald Tylinksi, Ed.D., STEM Premier president and co-founder. “The STEM Premier platform will connect high school students with the University, Vincennes students with scholarship and internship opportunities, and graduating students with potential employers.”
