ARCATA - HSU is joining seven other CSU campuses to participate in an innovative new program called STEM.

The program is designed to retain students in science, technology, engineering and mathematics. The university will create summer bridge programs that kindle students’ commitment to completing their degree and pursuing a STEM career. They'll also develop interactive seminars that actively engage first-year students who are STEM majors and redesign classes to include activities that ignite interest in STEM-related industries.

The program was made possible by a 4.6 million dollar grant from the Helmsley Charitable Trust and the CSU STEM Collaborative. Inspiration is the goal to train one million more STEM professionals over the next decade.

Participating campuses will serve as demonstration sites, sharing information with each other and the rest of the CSU system to improve STEM education and produce degreed professionals who will have high impact  in the workplace.
