The STEM Gateway Program was a Department of Education TITLE V grant that was active at UNM from 2011 - 2016 with the mission to increase the number of Hispanic and low-income students attaining STEM degrees. The initiatives focused on resources on undergraduate science & math courses that serve as gateways to STEM degrees, adntaht traditionally have had low success rates.

In the final year of the grant, they put together an excellent blog series with four rotating topics. We encourage you to read through these!
Our goal is to get students to understand that the path to their careers and success is not always a straight line; to highlight the broad possibilities for them with STEM degrees, outside of the traditional or obvious pathways; to think about their STEM education in a way that they may not realize; and to encourage them to persist despite challenges they will encounter. We want students to realize the possibilities of their STEM education.
Our goal is to focus on how students reach their STEM undergraduate aspirations.
Our goal is to cover faculty members' perspectives and thoughts on what students need to be successful in college.
Our goal is to show the benefit to mentor-mentee relationships and how they interaction develops and the contribution it can have on student success.
