Support for STEM Students
RISE (Relationships in Science Education) is a National Science Foundation-funded project awarded to Edmonds Community College for five years to increase the number of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) students graduating and transferring, increase diversity among STEM majors, graduates, and transfers, and increase the successful progression of STEM majors through gateway STEM courses.
The RISE student support program is a community of STEM students. RISE students are provided a suite of student support services, including:
- a faculty adviser and mentor,
- a STEM study room with peer and/or faculty tutors,
- an opportunity to be a paid peer tutor,
- social events, panels, and speakers on STEM topics,
- STEMinars – cohort classes for RISE students,
- academic support and workshops,
- undergraduate research opportunities and/or service-learning opportunities in STEM, and
- assistance in the university transfer process or job-search process.
