MESA Program

California's STEM Solution




The MESA Program was founded in 1970 and administered by the University of California and provides academic support for thousands of educationally and economically disadvantaged students so they can excel in math and science. MESA came to Los Medanos College in Fall 2009 to serve educationally underrepresented students in STEM fields. Through a wide range of services, MESA helps develops the necessary academic and leadership skills to successfully transfer and later graduate from a four-year university with a degree in mathematics, engineering, science or computer science.


MESA at LMC currently serves 200+ students.


Community College Program Goal: Support and ensure successful transfer to 4-year college in math-based/science majors.
