Welcome

We are located on the first floor of the Learning Resource Center (LRC-115). Our services are provided free to all Mesa College students; just remember to bring your student ID card!


If you are a STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics) major or taking a course in a STEM discipline you are strongly encouraged to visit the STEM Center. We are a space where STEM students  engage with one-another for tutoring, mentoring, studying, workshops, researching, and much more!

 

The STEM Center is funded by the HSI (Hispanic Serving Institution) Title III STEM Conexiones Grant, which seeks to increase the retention rate of Hispanic and low-income students in STEM disciplines.
