NOAA Education Strategic Plan

1
Science-Informed Society
Goal 1: Science-Informed Society
An informed society has access to, interest in, and understanding of NOAA-related sciences and their implications for current and future events.
Goal 2: Conservation & Stewardship
Individuals and communities are actively involved in stewardship behaviors and decisions that conserve, restore, and protect natural and cultural resources related to NOAA’s mission.
Goal 3: Safety & Preparedness
Individuals and communities are informed and actively involved in decisions and actions that improve preparedness, response, and resilience to challenges and impacts of hazardous weather, changes in climate, and other environmental threats monitored by NOAA.
Goal 4: Future Workforce
A diverse and highly skilled future workforce pursues careers in disciplines that support NOAA’s mission.
Goal 5: Organizational Excellence
NOAA functions in a unified manner to support, plan, and deliver effective educational programs and partnerships that advance NOAA’s mission.

The ocean, coastal, Great Lakes, weather, and climate systems that NOAA studies affect people of all backgrounds, regardless of age, socioeconomic status, or education level. As such, NOAA works with partners in education to reach a diverse range of audiences. NOAA contributes scientific expertise, laboratories, field sites, monitoring systems, environmental satellites, weather radar, world class data centers, and more to these partnerships. NOAA’s assets can be incorporated into education programs that engage youth and adults from all backgrounds in locally and globally relevant, inquiry-based learning opportunities that are applicable to their daily lives.

NOAA is responsible for fulfilling conservation laws that protect ecosystems, conserve marine species, and promote sustainable use of living marine resources. Human actions have had a profound impact on natural systems and these laws have been enacted to conserve resources for generations to come. At NOAA, stewardship education aims to improve public understanding of NOAA’s role in management and the science behind it. Stewardship education provides opportunities for participants to connect with local ecosystems and tools that can help them understand how individual behavior impacts the environment. These activities give people an active voice in managing and protecting resources that affect them on both a local and global scale.

Safety and preparedness decisions not only protect lives and property, but also maintain safe access to recreational opportunities and support vibrant economies on land and sea. Awareness can help communities make the best choices to plan for long-term resiliency. Yet despite NOAA’s best efforts to produce the most accurate science and products, NOAA’s warnings and alerts do not always lead to effective responses. NOAA is increasingly aware that human responses to a threat are as diverse as people themselves. Social science, risk communication, and education all contribute to a safe and prepared nation. NOAA recognizes that, while the agency will continue to improve our ability to understand and predict hazards, it is also imperative for NOAA to understand the society it serves.

NOAA relies on a world-class workforce with the scientific and technical skills needed to address the environmental challenges confronting our Nation and the planet. Rising Above the Gathering Storm, Revisited (National Academy of Sciences, 2010), states that building a workforce literate in STEM is crucial to maintaining America’s competitiveness in a rapidly changing global economy. As the global population increases, there is greater demand on the Earth’s natural systems; this creates a greater need for education and research to understand the complexities of human impacts and develop strategies for sustainable solutions. To maintain a pipeline of innovative talent, NOAA strives to cultivate a workforce that reflects the diversity of the Nation. As communities become more vulnerable to natural disasters and pressures on our natural resources intensify, we need the best and brightest from all backgrounds to develop solutions to complex environmental challenges.
