The proposed project has four major goals during the grant period:

  1. Increase the number of students in the College’s STEM pipeline from 185 students to 485 students.
  2. Increase the number of students who have completed the Associates of Science in Natural Science (ASNS) degree from 0 students to 290 students.
  3. Increase the number of students matriculating to the two collaborating four-year institutions in Hawaii from 90 students to 280 students.
  4. Institutionalize and provide ongoing support for STEM students in the pipeline.

To achieve these four major goals, a comprehensive strategy that integrates and adapts research-based promising practices with successful campus-based innovations has been developed.
