Washington MESA believes there are many benefits of a diverse and inclusive workplace. Therefore, our programs are targeted to increase representation of women, African Americans, Latino/Hispanic, Native American, and Native Hawaiian/Pacific islanders in STEM fields.
Washington MESA is one of the 11 “MESA States” in the national MESA USA network. Mathematics, Engineering, Science Achievement (MESA) is nationally recognized for its innovative and effective academic development program. MESA engages thousands of educationally disadvantaged students so they excel in math and science and graduate with STEM degrees. MESA partners with all segments of higher education as well as K-12 institutions.
We empower underrepresented students by providing them a community that supports their pathways to higher education in STEM, through mentorships, academic programs, and interactive workshops.
Diverse student populations in Washington State have the educational support and tools to create innovative solutions as they become the next leaders in STEM.
