Students for STEM Success (S-Cubed)


Students for STEM Success (S3) is a student-centered, STEM Gateway initiative that is focused on providing SUPPORT, STRENGTH, and SUCCESS to enhance the overall experience for STEM students at the University of New Mexico and Central New Mexico Community College.

S3 is dedicated to creating a community of support, friendship, and resources for your journey as a Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) student at UNM and UNM.

It is our mission to help STEM students make connections to others with similar interests, with their chosen department earlier in their degree pathway and to programs, support services, and workshops that will improve the mastery of their own learning skills and facilitate STEM degree attainment.

By establishing a cooperative student network beginning as soon as students arrive on campus we can build a truly integrative STEM community that facilitates STEM degree attainment for the diverse student body of the University of New Mexico.

In addition to enhancing and increasing student involvement in activities, programs and workshops already available on campus, S3 is launching a new series of workshops for both undergraduate and graduate students at UNM.

This initiative has transfered to the STEM Collaborative Center, so make sure to join the STEM listerve to stay informed!
