Establised in 1986, the Sacramento State Science Educational Equity (SEE) Program is a comprehensive academic support program for students who face social, economic and educaitonal barriers to careers in the health professions, science research and science teaching.
Although it won't cost you money to join the SEE program it will cost you time, energy, and commitment. The SEE program is a community of learners united in a common goal. Students are expected to share their knowledge with other students, provide personal and moral support to each other, participate in academic and extracurricular activities and expand their understanding and appreciation for the cultural heritage of our diverse community.
Every SEE student is asked to meet with a faculty advisor to plan an academic "map" of courses to follow while they are at the university. SEE advisors are science faculty who can give the best advice regarding what courses to take, when to take them, and the latest information regarding admission requirements to graduate and health professional school. SEE advisors keep regular office hours with the SEE office and are available for individual academic assistance and advising.
The SEE program works closely with organizations and programs such as the Academic Achievement Center/EOP, MESA, the College Assistance Migrant Program, Cooper-Woodson College, and Faculty Student Mentor Programs. The SEE program also engages in partnership efforts with Los Rios Community College District,faculty student mentor programs, and other state and private industries. As a SEE student you will also have the opportunity to meet with professionals in the community who are interested in helping you reach your career goal.
As a SEE student you will have an opportunity to meet many other students, with similar backgrounds and interests. SEE students often take classes together and study together in the SEE study room. Many students will be at your level of study, others will be close to graduation and serving as peer mentors. Whatever the level, you will find that SEE students are helpful, supportive, and concerned about you.
Although SEE is an academic based program, there is always time for fun. Barbecues, field trips, and pot lucks are always included in the list of SEE activities.
