The CSTEP Program is designed to increase the number of historically underrepresented and economically disadvantaged students who enroll in and complete undergraduate and graduate programs leading to professional licensure or to careers in the fields of science, technology and education at the College of Staten Island. Exposing our CSTEP students to research opportunities in technology, scientific research, and teaching will help them to view themselves as professionals. CSTEP students will in turn help to reshape the culture of the professional fields as they reach their desired career goals!
The CSTEP Program is housed at the College of Staten Island, and supported and administered through The Office of Academic Affairs, and the New York State Department of Education.

This vision provides the motivation and energy for bringing about a humane world, one that welcomes commonalities and cherishes the wealth of diversity found among our different community cultures. Using our collective knowledge and experience, we seek to advance social justice and protect human rights by valuing and nurturing the expansion of learning, intellectual inquiry, critical thinking and community services.
