About our work with the community 

  • The College of Science and Mathematics has a meaningful impact on our local, regional, and global community. Our faculty and students are at the heart of these efforts devoting their time to sharing enthusiasm for their areas of interest, listening to what the needs are in our community, and receiving grant funding to develop opportunities to match those needs.

  • As you will see in on our department-driven community pages below, each academic program has a unique strength they bring to CSM's role in engagement for the public good. 

  • Most of our programs have no or very minimal cost and we prioritize making the opportunities accessible to all members of our community with special effort to engage those who often face barriers to STEM exposure, achievement, and literacy.
