STEM 360 aims to increase awareness and participation in STEM disciplines, strengthening faculty advising and mentoring STEM students, educating students within our service area as a feeder into our STEM degree programs. The overall goal of this activity is to build the infrastructure that permits and contributes to a paradigm shift in the retention, education and graduation of underrepresented minorities in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics in the greater Savannah and surrounding areas. STEM 360 objectives will provide a foundation for SSU to sustainably educate parents, students and teachers, retain and graduate increased numbers of students in STEM fields for years to come.
