The Collaborative for Leadership, Education, and Assessment Research (CLEAR) at NJIT promotes pathways for success of students in college, career, and citizenship in the digital age through a multi-stakeholder approach.
The Collaborative for Leadership, Education, and Assessment Research (CLEAR) envisions a world where everyone can research and innovate to solve our problems effectively. We utilize a collaborative K-20 multi-stakeholder approach to support effective education and collaborative leadership to increase the participation and engagement of traditionally underrepresented groups. CLEAR works towards collaborative change through a collective impact approach. This work relies on community participation to solicit input from stakeholders to develop a shared agenda, mutually reinforcing actions, shared goals and metrics, as well as leadership and continuous communication.
CLEAR's newest program, STEM for Success, consolidates the collaborative's experience and will bring together stakeholders to coordinate efforts and develop needed resources and activities to promote career readiness through collaborative Technology, Engineering, Applied Arts, Math and Science (TEAMS) best practices in education. STEM for Success will initiate a long-term alliance-building effort to support women in STEM. This new initiative will impact girls from elementary school through college and early career supported by the STEM Education Support Program and the 321STEM kid’s journal. STEM for Success will also take an active role in the NSF INCLUDES Coordination Hub, a national network connecting all NSF INCLUDES programs across the United States.
