The proposed project has four major goals during the grant period:
- Increase the number of students in the College’s STEM pipeline from 185 students to 485 students.
- Increase the number of students who have completed the Associates of Science in Natural Science (ASNS) degree from 0 students to 290 students.
- Increase the number of students matriculating to the two collaborating four-year institutions in Hawaii from 90 students to 280 students.
- 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.
