Student Retention Enhancement Across Mathematics and Science


STREAMS works within the Bartlett College of Science & Mathematics to improve student success, supporting student learning and faculty development.

STREAMS is a five-year, $1 million, NSF-funded STEP Grant designed to help more students graduate with science or mathematics degrees from Bridgewater State University (NSF-DUE 0969109). Over the past four years, STREAMS has helped create a culture of student success and support in the Bartlett College of Science and Mathematics. Improved teaching and closer connections between students and faculty are enabling more students to reach their professional and academic goals.

STREAMS, or STudent Retention Enhancement Across Mathematics and Science, has aided faculty in creating new learning environments, created a residential learning community, focused energy on transfer student progress, and built a summer program that introduces first year students to research.
