Mission Statement

A subset of the Centers for Learning and Academic Success Services at California State University San Marcos, the STEM Student Success Center (STEM SSC) is dedicated to promoting student engagement and attainment of their educational and career goals. We foster an active and friendly learning environment by harnessing the power of peer-to-peer collaboration, academic assistance, and resources to strengthen student understanding of course concepts and to build their academic capacity.

The STEM SSC continuously seeks and adopts practices to promote a purposefully diverse and student-centered community. We create opportunities for STEM students to build confidence, develop transferable thinking and skillsets within STEM, other disciplines, and the real world.
