CSU STEM VISTA members take on a variety of roles, depending on their placement. All VISTA projects have an anti-poverty focus, empower the community, build organizational capacity, and develop sustainable solutions. CSU STEM VISTA focuses particularly on CSU STEM student success and/or K-12 student success in STEM.

The day-to-day activities of a CSU STEM VISTA member could include: developing and facilitating trainings and workshops, identifying funding opportunities, grant writing, coordinating community engagement projects, developing industry and non-profit partnerships, developing tracking and evaluation systems, and/or advising and assisting students.

Additionally, all CSU STEM VISTA members are required to participate in National Days of Service.
