HSI STEM Project

In September 2016, CSU, Chico learned that it had been awarded its first HSI federal grant.  The five-year, $4.2 million HSI Science, Technology, Engineering, or Mathematics (STEM) and Articulation Programs award from the U.S. Department of Education will support students in the Colleges of Agriculture, Natural Sciences, and Engineering, Computer Science and Construction Management; and strengthen STEM partnerships with Santa Rosa Junior College and Yuba College.  View the associated campus press release here.  

CSU, Chico was able to apply for the grant due to becoming eligible for federal Title III/V HSI grants in December 2015, approximately one year after the University’s Hispanic student enrollment surpassed 25 percent of the total student body.
