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.
