What We Do

Academic advising: All students majoring in a STEM subject area or working towards an AAS in a STEM field will be assigned a dedicated Student Success Coach specializing in the STEM majors offered at GCC and are encouraged to check in with your advisor on a regular basis.
Your STEM Connect Student Success Coach will assist you to establish your overall educational goals, provide information regarding college resources, assist in understanding the transfer process and provide a direct point of contact on campus.
Student Success Coaches are available between 8 a.m. - 6 p.m., individual hours vary. Please contact the STEM Connect office for specific hours at (623) 845-3552 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
