STEM Message from the Dean

Welcome to C-STEM, an exciting place to be because we don't just represent the major programs of study in STEM, but the philosophy of STEM education.  You will find that the College provides and supports a more student centered and engagement oriented way of teaching.  Our instruction is inquiry based that stresses problem solving coupled with discovery and decision making.  We want you to be able to find the solutions to problems, not just the answers.  Regardless of your chosen major you will find an applied approach to your education, because we feel this will best prepare you for your future where you will find a very dynamic and changing workplace.  Learning in a manner that carefully connects how you apply that knowledge increases the effectiveness of your education.  That's what we strive to accomplish as we help you develop your critical thinking skills and challenge your curiosity.

I encourage you to visit us and explore the stimulating and challenging opportunities we provide.  And to see if this exciting environment supports what you want and need as you prepare for your future.
