In September 2016, Chaffey College was awarded a five-year U.S. Department of Education Title III HSI STEM & Articulation Project. The project is part of a coordinated effort to increase the number of underrepresented students attaining AA/AS degrees in STEM and/or ready to transfer to four-year institutions to study in the fields of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics.
This exciting grant allows the college to build on and significantly expand its STEM program.
