Strengthening Talents & Exploring Pathways (STEP) aims to help students attain better understanding and exposure to opportunities that will enrich their learning and academic success, ultimately to increase retention and graduation rates among its participants. We provide enhanced academic and co-curricular support services to excelling students who are first-generation, low-income, and students with disabilities.  The STEP Scholars Program is a federally funded TRiO Student Support Services (SSS) program and implemented in January 2016 under the Calvin E. Bright Success Center.
