The Office of Undergraduate Studies is thrilled to announce we are putting the “M” back in STEM! This fall the Math Lab and STEM SSC will unify as the STEM Success Center under the direction of the current math lab director, Jen Brich.
From the STEM Success Center, students can expect the same helpful tutoring and robust programming that has supported them in the past, as well as new offerings streamlined into a one-stop service in our exciting new space on the second floor of the Extended Learning building.
Our merge will not only bring new opportunities for students, but it will also allow for new collaborations with staff and faculty across campus. As we create a unified vision for serving students, faculty and staff will play invaluable roles.
We’re excited about the unified experience this will bring for our students as we join two thriving centers into one robust hub of STEM learning and resources.
