STEM program expands to Clark College




Clark College and other Washington schools will offer a program helping students of color and women transfer to universities for science and technology degrees, the State Board for Community and Technical Colleges announced Tuesday.

The Mathematics, Engineering, Science Achievement program, or MESA, will come to Clark to help underrepresented students pursue STEM-related degrees, or science, technology, engineering and math. The college will receive $125,000 annually to help enroll students in tutoring, extra study sessions, transfer counseling and study centers.

Including the six colleges announced this week, 12 of the state’s 34 community and technical college offer MESA.
