Program to Aid Underrepresented Student Groups
A new program for students in the Erik Jonsson School of Engineering and Computer Science aims to help underrepresented students navigate and succeed in traditionally challenging engineering and computer science courses at the University.

Called STARRS (Supporting the Transition to Achieve Recruiting and Retention Success), the program seeks to increase the enrollment and retention of underrepresented engineering and computer science graduates in the Jonsson School.
