STEM Bound Program
STEM Bound is focused on first-generation college students, students of color, and those who have been underrepresented in STEM fields. The program is a cohort model where students completing a STEM program build relationships with other STEM students and faculty through similar courses and co-curricular activities. We hope that the support students receive from this program will provide them with skills needed to successfully complete a higher-level STEM degree and become part of the STEM workforce.
Pierce College offers a comprehensive program that includes advising, direct contact with STEM faculty, and support in the completion of STEM-related degrees. The program starts in the summer and continues throughout the school year.
Get a head start in college with our Summer Bound program that will help you develop a cohort with other students and complete a college readiness course.
Begin taking STEM-related classes in fall quarter with your cohort, helping you build relationships and develop career skills.
Continue to receive academic support in your final year and become a leader to help guide first-year students as they make their way through the STEM program.
