A federal grant program aimed at addressing inequities in STEM education is under implementation at La Sierra University, which helps at-risk students earn bachelor’s degrees and pursue STEM careers. Directed toward Hispanic and low-income students, the grant, Guided Pathways to Success in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) is funded by a $3 million Title V award received in October 2019 from the U.S. Department of Education.

“We believe that students shouldn’t be limited by barriers to success because of their circumstances,” said Dr. Marvin Payne, Director of Title V Programs at La Sierra University. “Our programs are helping to break down the barriers.”

The funding supports development, improvement and expansion of programs that increase equitable access to STEM degree programs and improve graduation rates, bolstering the STEM workforce.
