The Accelerate Success program, combined with university engagement, creates a sense of community, connects students with mentors, provides in-group role models, and teaches skills for collegiate and professional success. The goal of the program is to have industry impact by retaining women in their STEM majors and enabling their potential post-graduation.
“Stempower has allowed me to explore the different majors on campus and connect with people who can help me figure out what I want to study in college. I have connected with other students in the STEM field and the most empowering part of it was connecting with other women who similarly share challenges like I do. Terri and the other girls collectively have been a great help in the journey in which the next four years bring me.” -Jesenia '23
“The Stempower Program has introduced me to a group of women that I have become very close with. The sessions are not information presentations, but engaging meetings teaching skills that STEM majors will be able to use in the workforce. This program has been a great opportunity for me to connect with others.” -Alexis '22
