Become a CSU STEM VISTA !
About CSU STEM VISTA:
In alignment with the values and priorities of the Center for Community Engagement (CCE) in the CSU, Office of the Chancellor, the CSU STEM VISTA program advances the CSU’s commitment to inclusivity, equity and student success in STEM. Our work is focused on eliminating race, class, and gender disparities in STEM by fostering cultural and systemic change within our institutions and communities. The CSU STEM VISTA program is unique in that we do not provide grant funding, but rather a full-time individual for one year (July 2018 – July 2019) who can support a variety of campus projects related to closing the equity gap in STEM. As a short-term resource, this individual, the AmeriCorps*VISTA member, helps to build the long-term sustainability of campus programs. Your proposed year-long project for the VISTA member must be developed with the goal to phase out the need for a VISTA member and for the proposed project to have the capacity to continue without them. During the past four years, CSU STEM VISTA members have helped campuses launch peer mentoring programs, expand partnerships with K-12 schools, develop academic enrichment trainings and workshops, and establish academic internship and research opportunities for women, first generation, low-income and students of color in STEM.
