UTI Representative Joins STEM Education Council
August 2, 2013—Universal Technical Institute's (UTI) national director of high school development Jerry Ellner was recently named to the STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) Education Coalition Leadership Council.
The STEM Education Coalition includes more than 500 business, professional and educational organizations, and represents a broad yet unified voice in advocating for policies to improve STEM education at all levels.
Ellner and a team of nearly 150 UTI admissions representatives deliver informative, helpful STEM workshops to more than 10,000 high schools in 33 states, helping students and teachers understand what qualifies as STEM.
"Many people don't realize that STEM is central to a lot of what makes working on cars so exciting," Ellner said. "We all like hearing the roar of the engine, but few stop to think about what actually makes the engine roar. UTI is ready to explain to people why it's important to stop and think about it."
