IMSA’s mission is to “ignite and nurture creative, ethical scientifi c minds that advance the human condition.” That’s a tall order, and we don’t apologize for that! Many of society’s challenges in this century will be addressed by leaders in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM). IMSA strives to develop leaders who will use their talents in STEM to work collaboratively to make positive social impacts.
At IMSA, we create conditions that enable students to develop and demonstrate their leadership skills. This issue highlights the many opportunities students have to expand their leadership capacities through advocacy, service, entrepreneurial ventures and collaborative problem solving.
