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.
