Addressing the diversity gap in STEAM fields and health professions.

Originally created in 2017,  the Pathways program is for students who want to explore and/or considering attending College to pursue a major leading to a science and/or health-related career.  Going into its fifth consecutive year, the Pathways Program has allowed students to meet new friends, mentors, and faculty; has taught the intricacies of the STEAM fields; and has allowed students an opportunity to participate in the Future Health Sciences Student Academy and in student research activities, allowing students to display the outcomes of their science work.


Applications for our fifth cohort of students, scheduled to begin September 2021, is now open. We invite you to see the upcoming program dates and to enroll now.
