April 2024 Newsletter: STEM PUSH Programs Earn Accreditation

In a major achievement for greater equity in post-secondary STEM, six STEM PUSH pre-college STEM programs (PCSPs), have earned a first-of its kind accreditation from Middle States Association Commissions on Elementary and Secondary Schools (MSA-CESS).

Accreditation validates the demonstrated progress STEM PUSH is making in broadening access in STEM for Black, Latina/o/e, and Indigenous students. What makes this novel is that it is not solely a quality credential, but it recognizes the capacity to create more equitable STEM pathways and social mobility through higher education.

In this newsletter, we chronicle STEM PUSH’s process in achieving this goal and dive deeper into the work of the first cohort earning accreditation.
