CSU STEM VISTA Program
Life is an Experiment, Cultivate the Solution
In July 2014, the CSU Center for Community Engagement will launch the first systemwide AmeriCorps*VISTA program, CSU STEM VISTA: Building Institutional Capacity for a Stronger Baccalaureate.
The CSU STEM VISTA Program will place 15 VISTA members (Volunteers in Service to America) with CSU STEM departments or Colleges to increase STEM student success at the college and K-12 level, particularly among traditionally under-represented students.
CSU STEM VISTA members will have a variety of roles: addressing issues of poverty, empowering communities, building organizational capacity, and developing sustainable solutions.
