CSU STEM Collaboratives

How Will it Work?

At least eight CSU campuses will expand intensive summer-through-first-year-programs to actively engage students in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math. At those campuses, students who identify a major within the STEM fields at participating CSU campuses will first take part in an immersive summer experience modeled on traditional Summer Bridge and the new, lighter-weight Early Start programs for remedial English and Math. Student cohorts will then track into first-year courses designed to engage and excite STEM degree aspirants. In addition, students will participate in a supportive and diverse learning community, build networks with faculty mentors, and immerse themselves in experiences that position them as scientists and engineers.
