The iSTEM Program at EIU

What is iSTEM?

Inclusion in STEM! iSTEM brings together students from underrepresented groups in the STEM disciplines and faculty committed to encouraging and empowering these students. Our iSTEM group includes those in the sciences, social sciences, technology, engineering, mathematics and computer science fields. Faculty serve as mentors, and the group meets regularly for networking as well as social and professional engagement opportunities.
