LEHMAN COLLEGE — Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) students will lose major opportunities to gain research experience on campus when the Pathways to Student STEM Success’ (PTS3) program funding comes to an end in Sept. 2021.

“As the PTS3 program comes to an end, our students who remain at the college post the program’s last day may lack in services,” said Rafael Gonzalez, PTS3 program campus director and mathematics adjunct lecturer at Lehman. “For instance, although Lehman has a career and advising center, our students benefited in having their own advisor with an intrusive model.”
