Community Engagement

Our outreach programs aim to provide greater accessibility to academic opportunities in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) disciplines, especially for traditionally underrepresented groups. We advance toward this goal through community engagement, with programs connecting local students and educators at all levels, as well as the general public, with faculty, students, and researchers within the Department.
