Later this month, UNCW will welcome the second cohort of students to campus as part of the 2019 STEAM Team Program. STEAM Team is a weeklong, residential summer program hosted by UNCW free of cost for underserved ninth- and tenth-grade students recruited from New Hanover, Pender and Brunswick counties. A select group of students with an expressed interest in STEAM disciplines, an exemplary academic record and a recommendation from a school official are accepted.
The program grows from the UNC System Strategic Plan, which outlines the system’s history of access and student diversity:
UNCW STEAM Team immerses students in a university campus environment and provides them with opportunities to engage in hands-on learning in STEAM fields including science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics. STEAM Team 2019 has added a full day of entrepreneurship to the program. By inspiring students from populations underrepresented in universities and colleges to pursue higher education and explore a variety of career paths, we can help ensure their future success.
Providing North Carolinians access and encouragement to pursue higher education is not confined solely to helping students gain admittance to college. It also includes providing multiple access points into the University, and academic, financial, cultural, and other knowledge-based services to help all students — but particularly those who are underserved for any reason — aspire to, enroll in, and graduate from institutions that match their interests and capabilities.
