To create opportunities for
educationally disadvantaged students, especially those from groups with low
participation rates in college, to prepare for and enter professions requiring
degrees in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM).
Vision of SDSU MESA Schools Program (MSP):
Our vision is to provide a
rigorous and enriching academic program that encourages and fosters a
college-going culture among educationally disadvantaged students in the San
Diego area and opens the door for careers in STEM, both locally and
beyond. Through a core STEM curriculum,
college preparation seminars, parent outreach, and various mentoring
opportunities, students will be competitively eligible for admission to top
colleges and universities; MESA students will possess the academic, social, and
cultural capital needed to succeed at all levels.
