PRISM: CSUSB Strengthening the Scientific Workforce

The goal of the Proactive Recruitment in Introductory Science and Mathematics (PRISM) program at CSUSB is to strengthen the scientific workforce by increasing the number of well-prepared graduates in the Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) disciplines.

In order to accomplish this goal, the PRISM program attracts promising Freshmen and Sophomores to the sciences by providing them with an early research experience, retains them throughout their undergraduate career with a variety of mentoring and advising activities, and incorporates them into the scientific community at large through fostering further research and conference participation.

Students interested in learning more about becoming a PRISM Scholar, the summer research program, benefits and expectations, or application procedures should follow the appropriate links on this page.  Also feel free to meet the faculty involved, see what current PRISM Scholars have to say, view past research projects, or just peruse what’s going on with PRISM.  If you have need of further information, please do not hesitate to contact us!
