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.
