MESA Icon Adapting Higher Education to Meet Black, Indigenous and People of Color (BIPOC) Needs in the New Virtual Environment: Sonoma State is proud to continue strengthening and expanding its programs on the Sonoma State University campus and in the wider educational community.

About The Program

Mathematics, Engineering, Science, Achievement (MESA) at Sonoma State University is a nationally recognized California academic support program that provides a resilient learning community and strong base to students in the School of Science and Technology. The goal of MESA is to increase the number of historically underrepresented students who pursue and persist in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) related degrees and, ultimately, careers. Throughout their studies, MESA students engage in “high impact” experiences, such as advising, undergraduate research, tutoring, mentoring, and leadership development. This academic community is what sets MESA apart from other programs.
