The NSF HSI STEM Initiative Grant is a grant awarded directly to South Plains College. This grant is a planning grant to set up the institution to further STEM advancement at SPC for years to come. The grant will use the next two years to make great strides in planning future summer camps for STEM students. These camps will initially focus on dual credit high school students and first year generation incoming freshman. The grant will also have a faculty summer institute that will focus on the advancement of STEM advising for our STEM majors.
We know that academic advising is key to any student’s success in college. We also know that academic advisors, especially faculty serving double duty, don’t get enough training or credit. South Plains College aims to change this by educating faculty academic advisors on the importance of academic advising in the STEM fields. Just a simple visit to the office can make a far-reaching difference in the realization of college endeavors.
