CSU STEM VISTA
About the CSU STEM VISTA Program
The CSU STEM VISTA: Building Institutional Capacity for a Stronger Baccalaureate, is a program launched by California State University (CSU)'s Center of Community Engagement with AmeriCorps VISTA in July 2014. The CSU STEM VISTA Program builds leadership of VISTA members and host site supervisors to foster cultural and systemic change in higher education in STEM. AmeriCorps VISTA members serve on CSU campuses full-time for 10 weeks (summer) or one year.
