The University of California, San Diego is a top ten public research university that is transforming lives, shaping new disciplines and advancing the frontiers of knowledge. UC San Diego and our region are well known for strength in science, technology, engineering, arts and math (STEAM), but it is vital that we build a pipeline of skilled, educated workers in these fields for San Diego's knowledge-economy. It is predicted that 16 of the 20 occupations with the largest projected growth in the next decade are STEAM related – and that is why outreach efforts that partner community and university resources are key to ensuring the pipeline success.

UC San Diego has a variety of educational programs already in place to encourage STEAM careers for students in our community, including:

  • K-12 tutoring/mentoring programs
  • Graduate student outreach
  • Science partnerships
  • Opportunities for collaborations
  • Summer programs
  • Professional development for teachers
  • Community and family programs

UC San Diego is a Lever for San Diego STEAM Education and Success
