Many faculty in the Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math-related fields are involved with student research. Below are some resources for learning more about some of the STEM-related opportunities at CI.
The Louis Stokes Alliance for Minority Participation (LSAMP) is funded by the National Science Foundation. Its purpose is to help overcome social, educational, or economic barriers to careers in the STEM disciplines. Professor Cindy Wyles is the LSAMP lead at CI. See her page for additional information.
Project ACCESO is a Department of Education funded Hispanic-Serving Institutions Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (HSI-STEM) grant that seeks to increase CSU Channel Islands’ ability to support students enrolled in STEM majors. Students hired as ACCESO Research Assistants work in small teams conducting research with CI STEM faculty. CI students may apply to be a Research Assistant during the academic year. ACCESO has other paid positions for students interested in becoming involved.
Retaining, Inspiring, Supporting, and Engaging (RISE) Students in STEM at CSU Channel Island is a project from the Chancellor’s Office STEM Collaboratives Initiative funded by a generous grant from The Helmsley Charitable Trust aimed at addressing the national problem of too few STEM graduates, particularly under-represented minorities and women.
