Program Design

The Science and Technology Educational Partnerships for Success program at UTB, better known as the STEPS program, proposes to address the needs of the predominately Hispanic student population of the South Texas region through collaboration with three regional community colleges: Texas State Technical College Harlingen, South Texas College in McAllen and Del Mar College in Corpus Christi. The STEPS program will:

  • Enhance student transferability into bachelor's level science, technology, engineering and mathematics fields, and applied technology programs
  • Facilitate student support interventions to improve the transfer process
  • Create an attractive pipeline for science majors to take coursework in bioinformatics and computer forensics
  • Create an endowment that will provide scholarships and incentives to bolster student persistence in higher-education pursuits
