STEM Success Center


The STEM Success Center gives students the opportunity to develop their academic skills, through coaching and tutoring services in English, mathematics and technology courses). Students will benefit from the help provided by their coaches through the development of a plan to complete their studies and obtain new opportunities. Students will be advised, both in academic and individual matters. In this way they will receive feedback and guidance during their university life. They can also improve their academic performance through tutorials in different subjects. On the other hand, the community external to Dewey University will benefit from the STEM offerings during a free summer camp (Summer Bridge), which will be offered for high school students in grades 10, 11 and 12.
