The Mt. San Jacinto College Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) project supports Hispanic and low-income students interested in STEM fields to identify and achieve their educational goals. The project is funded in the amount of $4.28 million through the College Cost Reduction and Access Act (CCRAA) which is a U.S. Department of Education Title V grant available to Hispanic Serving Institutions.
Our project goals include the following:
- Increase the number of students transferring from MSJC to four-year universities in STEM fields
- Increase the number of STEM degrees awarded at MSJC
- Increase access and use of student support services for students interested in STEM fields
- Improve STEM course retention and success rates
