Take a quick look at the schedule of that day:



MPS pathway

The Math Performance Success (MPS) Program had been awarded $1.9 Million for the Innovation for Higher Education from the California Chancellor's Office. Funds will be used to expand the MPS STEM pathway which will increase the share of students finishing pre-calculus series (Math 41, 42, 43).

The U.S. will have over 1 million jobs by 2018 in STEM fields but only 16% STEM degrees will be awarded to U.S. college students.

 De Anza College is dedicated to minimizing this gap and increasing the recruitment of students into STEM fields.

Join the STEM Success Program and keep updated on STEM related events and opportunities!
