Next NGA West Presentations Among The Highlights at 2017 DoDIIS Worldwide Conference in St. Louis
In the News
Grading and final site work on the future western headquarters of the National Geospatial Intelligence Agency in north St. Louis should begin next month and wrap up by February.
To meet a growing need for construction workers in the region, a host of trade unions, training schools and contractors took part in a job fair Monday on the site of the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency's future campus in North St. Louis. Construction of the $1.75 billion campus will require around 300 workers at any given time, said Leonard Toenjes, president of the Associated General Contractors of Missouri.
Housing and Urban Development Secretary Julián Castro announced Monday that the city of St. Louis will receive $29.5 million to redevelop severely distressed public or assisted housing and revitalize the surrounding neighborhood.
If a conference this week is any indication, the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency appears to be making good on statements that it wants to shed the low-profile reputation it has maintained in St. Louis.
When the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency opens its new facility on the city’s North Side early next decade, it doesn’t want to be an obscure federal agency tucked away in an industrial corridor anymore.
NGA in the Community
NGA has been a proud member of the St. Louis community for more than 70 years. The agency continues its commitment to be a positive dynamic force in the region through partnerships with:
St. Louis-area Schools
On average, NGA employees volunteer approximately 500 hours of service annually to St. Louis-area schools and educational events through NGA’s Partners in Education (PIE) program, which connects NGA employees to local schools to serve as tutors, mentors and science educators. Visit NGA's PIE program page for more information.
St. Louis-area Colleges and Research Institutes
NGA scientists work closely with local scientists through special collaborative research relationships with Saint Louis University, the University of Missouri –Columbia and the Boeing Company to advance science and technology.
NGA also works with several St. Louis-area colleges to identify potential future employees. NGA actively recruits at the University of Missouri St. Louis, Saint Louis University and Washington University.
St. Louis-area Businesses
NGA works with companies such as ESRI, Leidos and Harris, who maintain a presence in the St. Louis area.
