What is STEM?
Science, Technology, Engineering and Math. STEM workers drive our nation’s innovation and competitiveness by generating new ideas, new companies and new industries.
In the Fall of 2011 Mountain View College was awarded $4.1 million by the Department of Education through their HSI STEM Articulation Program. This program provides funding to Hispanic Serving Institutions to increase the number of under-represented minorities entering into and completing a STEM field of study. Mountain View’s STEM SUCCESS grant addresses key components identified by researchers as being a variable impacting Hispanic student success: student centered engagement, faculty development and expanding opportunities for students to consistently engage with STEM faculty and industry professionals in a STEM-centered environment of exploration and collaboration.
