CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas – The Research Coordination Network for Climate, Energy, Environment and Engagement in Semiarid Regions (RCN CE3SAR) gathered 47 representatives from all over South Texas on the Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi campus Friday, Nov. 22, to discuss the development of what has been termed a regional educational ecosystem focused on Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM); plus Art and Design.

The planning session was led by Dean of Texas A&M University-College Station College of Architecture, Jorge Vanegas. While the primary focus of the meeting was sharing and developing a vision for an exciting future of education in the South Texas area, participants were also able to develop some action steps to take toward making that vision a reality.

Taking part were representatives from Texas A&M-Corpus Christi, Texas A&M University-College Station, Texas A&M International University, University of Texas-Pan American, Texas A&M University-Kingsville, the P-16 Council, Education Service Center Region 2, the Corpus Christi Independent School District, and Sinton T-STEM Academy; area arts organizations such as the Art Center of Corpus Christi and the Art Museum of South Texas; environmental agencies including the Texas Sea Grant, Coastal Bend Bays and Estuaries Program and the Nature Conservancy; civic groups through the Hispanic Chamber of Commerce and Workforce Solutions of the Coastal Bend; and regional businesses such as Shimadzu Scientific Instruments and Toby Globy.
