Testimonials from our Scholars

The STEP program has immensely motivated me both academically and in my career development because of how supportive and encouraging everyone is. STEP has pushed me out of my comfort zone into making new connections with people who share the same drive. –Kate M.

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.
