CSU San Marcos Pathways to academic success and opportunity

BECAUSE I’M A CSU STEM VISTA…

I have the skillset needed to succeed in graduate school and beyond.

I have a greater understanding of the challenges that underrepresented students face, specifically those who are pursuing STEM degrees, and ways that I can alleviate barriers through institutional change. By partnering with on-campus programs and centers, I have created opportunities for students with the goal of broadening participation in STEM. The CSU STEM VISTA program has equipped me with the tools to evaluate my initiatives, allowing me to measure my impact on student outcomes. Knowing that you are changing lives is the best feeling in the world.
