Our philosophy of collective impact is that of enlightened self-interest, in which we share resources with other key stakeholders in the community for the greater good, which eventually serves all of us well. The North Louisiana STEM Alliance has created an asset map, gap analysis, SWOT (strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats) analysis, and SMART (specific, measurable, achievable, results-focused, and time-bound) goal planning through the assistance of our national organization (STEM Learning Ecosystems www.stemecosystems.org) and the Teaching Institute for Excellence in STEM (TIES).

Originally supported by the Beaird Family Foundation; currently funded by the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS).
