Policy & Advocacy

CSLNet works at the national, state and regional levels to advance policy changes that will improve the quality and availability of STEM education.

We build close working relationships with state legislators, regulators and administrative leaders, as well as other statewide policy advocacy organizations, to inform and shape key policy decisions.
