Funded by a $4.6 million grant from the Helmsley Charitable Trust and coordinated through the CSU Office of the Chancellor, STEM (science, technology, engineering, mathematics) Collaboratives tasked eight CSU campuses with integrating high-impact practices to create a supportive environment for first-year STEM students.
In addition to examining student outcomes, this report reviews findings on the value of the project for the broader campus community, the process of collaborating across departments and divisions, and implementation challenges unique to creating integrated programs.
As the largest producer of college graduates in the state of California, the CSU plays an important role in increasing the number of students graduating in the fields of STEM to meet future workforce demands.
