University lands $1.5 million federal grant for STEM programs

Chemistry student Sacramento State has landed significant seed money in its effort to grow STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) programs, receiving a five-year, $1.5 million grant from the National Science Foundation (NSF).

Funding is from NSF’s new Hispanic-Serving Institutions STEM initiative, which will enhance the University’s ability to educate, then put into the workforce, graduates with skills in several important disciplines.

“Faculty participants will develop their teaching skills by identifying specific areas in which they want to improve,” Sacramento State professors Mary McCarthy-Hintz and Lynn Tashiro said. “We expect that this will lead to increased persistence of students in STEM fields, particularly of students from underrepresented groups.”
