America’s “leaky pipeline” -- 8 out of 10 ninth graders will not earn Associate’s or Bachelor’s degree. Source: “American Higher Education: How Does It Measure Up for the 21st Century?” (May 2006), The National Center for Public Policy and Higher Education, Courtesy of Milken Institute For every 100 ninth graders... ...68 graduate on time Of those, 40 enroll in college Of those, 27 are still in college the following year Of those, 18 earn an Associate’s degree within 3 years or a Bachelor’s degree within 6 years
The leaky pipeline is even worse for the skills the U.S. needs to compete in the global economy.
Few of the 18 graduates will have a degree in science, technology, engineering or math (STEM)
In 2006, more U.S. students graduated with sports exercise degrees than with electrical engineering degrees.
By 2020, the U.S. will not have the workforce it needs to compete.
The U.S. needs increases in:
K-12 student achievement
Degree attainment, especially among under-represented groups and in STEM.
This is not an “education” problem. It is one of national competitiveness.
For every 100 9th graders... ...68 graduate on time Of those, 40 enroll in college Of those, 27 are still in college the following year Of those, 18 earn an Associate’s degree within 3 years or a Bachelor’s degree within 6 years
What is Service Science, Management and Engineering (SSME)?
The application of scientific, management, and engineering disciplines to tasks that one organization beneficially performs for and with another (‘services’)
Services are anything of economic value that cannot be dropped on your foot.
The key to service value is in actions, performed now or promised for the future. Services often create mutual interdependencies.
Especially complex organization to organization services – business to business, nation to nation, organization to population
Example Curriculum: SSME at North Carolina State University

IBM server technology as a “platform of choice”
An IBM Faculty Award in 2004 eventually led to commercial use of open-source code to identify security vulnerabilities in Netflix’s system of renting movies by mail. FindBugs project team makes code available to the open source community via SourceForge.net (led by Eclipse Innovation Award recipient and a Ph.D. student who worked as an Extreme Blue intern at IBM) 2004 IBM Eclipse Innovation Award provided to Dr. Bill Pugh (University of Maryland, College Park) Funded project focused on an Eclipse-based tool for Java error detection Netflix uses code to identify security vulnerabilities Netflix’s VP of Web Engineering offers to be showcased as a Success Story for the Innovation Award Ecosystem Value Add IBM, Universities, Technical Communities, and Clients
