The Mission STEM Program is made possible by a five-year grant (2011-2016) by the U.S. Department of Education. It serves as the hub for STEM faculty and students, strengthening academic services by:
- Expanding tutoring, math workshops and summer bridge programs for STEM students.
- Supporting curriculum development in math, life science, physical science and computer science.
- Renovating the computer science lab and upgrading technology.
- Offering STEM Summer Academy to incoming STEM majors.
- Expanding and formalizing undergraduate research program.
Key measures of success include:
- Increased number of STEM degrees awarded.
- Increased number of technology infused courses across STEM disciplines.
- Increased STEM articulation agreements.
- Increased retention and transfer rates.
- Increased Hispanic graduation, degree attainment, and transfer rates.
