MESA at College of Alameda

Empowering Students to Excel in STEM Majors & Become Tomorrow’s Leaders in Science, Engineering, and Math

*****MESA Center is now OPEN for Spring 2019*****

 

MESA is a peer and professional support community whose sole aim is to increase access and opportunities of success in STEM-related fields to students who are the first in their family to graduate college, and come from a low-income and historically underrepresented background. We provide resources and support to MESA students to cultivate essential academic skills, develop leadership, and achieve success in school, career, life, and STEM-related fields.
