The SURGE Program Goals are:

    • To increase the exposure of community college Science, Technology, Engineering, or Mathematic (STEM) majors to laboratory research equipment, methodologies and current research.

    • To enhance access to higher math classes by increasing student placement scores through utilizing an intense one-week "Math Jam" model. In addition, student success and retention in higher level course will be increased by student preparation using Math, Chemistry and Physics Jams.     

    • To improve the rate of graduation and transfer among underserved populations in STEM fields by creating a pipeline to appropriate student support programs.
