The TRIO STEM-H Student Support Services Program is designed to provide valuable services to low income, first generation, and/or students with disabilities pursuing degrees in science, technology, engineering, math, and health fields.  We collaborate with resources on campus as well as provide unique workshops to develop and support the specific skills needed by students in these challenging majors.

Our goal is to bring together a comprehensive set of resources that will allow you to be successful in your academic path, graduate, and excel in your career ahead.


We are proud of our graduates.

Three STEM-H participants are graduating this semester. They are Octavio Nayares (Environmental Science major), Tristan Tyson (Aerospace Engineering major), and Adriana Erives Gonzalez (Civil Engineering major). The graduates were presented with TRIO STEM-H graduation cords to wear during the graduation ceremony on Saturday, December 8, 2018.



Chantel Becenti took home the Echo Dot! Each participant who completed the STEM-H Student Support Services program evaluation was entered into the Echo Dot drawing, and Chantel was the lucky winner.
