The main goals of the SURGE Program are:
To increase the exposure of community college STEM majors to laboratory research equipment, methodologies and current research
To enhance access to higher math classes by increasing student placement scores through utilizing a "Math Jam" model. Other science course "Jam" sessions will increase student success and retention in courses such as physics and chemistry.
To improve the rate of graduation and transfer among underserved populations in the field of science, mathematics, and engineering by creating a pipeline to appropriate student support programs.
