Dean Nada Anid Serves as Co-Chair for Engineering at LI STEM Hub Celebration

On April 9, 2014, Dr. Nada Anid, Dean of the School of Engineering and Computing Sciences, attended the second annual Stars of STEM event, a celebration in honor of the Long Island Regional STEM Hub. The Stars of STEM event, which was held at The Cradle of Aviation in Garden City, consisted of a Long Island STEM Student Showcase, an exhibit of Long Island businesses, and distinguished guest speakers such as Al Bunshaft, President and CEO of Dassault Systems. The LI STEM Hub seeks to bring together various sectors of the educational and industrial sectors of the Long Island community through eight focus groups: energy and environment, engineering and architecture, manufacturing, aerospace, information technology, healthcare and life sciences, homeland security, and global business.

This past year, Dr. Anid served as Co-Chair for the Engineering and Architecture Regional Industry Council (RIC) alongside John Cameron, CEO of Cameron Engineering. In this leadership role Dr. Anid was a part of the team that decided on which STEM Hub activities will take place, in particular the “Reconstruction and Resilience” theme of this year's high school's challenge for rebuilding and reinforcing Long Island's infrastructure post-Sandy.

LI STEM Hub is a network of businesses and academic institutions that are dedicated to advancing the fields of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics in order to create a more vibrant and dynamic economy in Long Island. The LI STEM Hub is one of 10 such initiatives throughout New York State, created as part of the Empire State STEM Learning Network. The organization, which is led by the U.S. Department of Energy’s Brookhaven National Laboratory and the North-Shore LIJ Health System, connects businesses, public schools, universities, museums, research institutions, parents, and teachers based in Long Island in order to forge STEM education programs and partnerships that expand and improve college and career opportunities for students.
