The STEM Pathways Program is a supportive mentored program committed to helping students navigate how to transition from community college to a 4-year university, explore STEM careers, and pursue a career that best fits their interests. The STEM Pathways program built upon San Diego State University’s commitment to inclusive excellence implements mentored and applied experiences for STEM majors. It begins at one of the partnering community colleges (Southwestern & San Diego City), continues through SDSU, and on to graduate school and/or STEM career path. With a target audience of Latinx students, STEM Pathways is committed to bridging the access gap for minoritized communities and increasing the numbers of Latinx STEM professionals entering the workforce. STEM Pathways is committed to cultivating a supportive environment to foster and grow a diverse community of STEM professionals while identifying and removing roadblocks to student transfer and post-transfer success.
