The STEM Program is a peer mentoring program designed to promote student success through increased acceptance rates into undergraduate students' intended majors and increased college graduation rates of students. The STEM Program is geared toward achieving specific academic and developmental goals that are focused on students' overall development. STEM peer mentors provide undergraduate students in our target population academic support through one-on-one and small group mentoring sessions, during which they may tutor, facilitate discussions, help students locate resources, and promote academic and life skills development.
The STEM Program strives to ensure that all students are given the full opportunity to discover and develop their talents, interests, and unique potential, and to provide a learning-centered and student-centered environment that presents the context for intellectual, cultural, professional, and personal growth during the college experience. STEM participants will learn to become an independent, confident learner and develop good study habits and time management skills that will enhance their education and college experience, as well as to enable them to achieve a post-secondary degree.
