STEM Pathways for Acceleration, Completion, and Transfer Success (STEM PACTS) 


STEM PACTS project aims to increase the number of Hispanic and low-income students attaining STEM degrees by establishing (1) a streamlined transfer pathway model with personalized advisement for MDC STEM students to promote transfer to 4- year institutions; (2) a mentorship program with STEM professionals, including authentic undergraduate research experiences, internships in STEM industries, and scheduled interactions with STEM trailblazers; (3) a STEM Reinventing Educational Equity for Students (REEFS) Center for the implementation of student intervention strategies, including high-impact practices, to foster student completion of STEM courses; and (4) a STEM-focused early immersion program for incoming first-time-in-college students designed for direct advancement from high school to college.
