MESA stands for Math, Engineering, and Science Achievement. It is a nationally recognized comprehensive academic support program for students majoring in Mathematics, Science, and Engineering. The program originated in California in 1970, and has been replicated in selected sites across the country. The MESA Center at San Antonio College was established in 2007, and has been funded by grants from the National Science Foundation and the U.S. Department of Education.
The SAC MESA Study Center was established to help students in the fields of Mathematics, Science, Engineering, and Technology specializations, achieve academic and personal success. Although resources are provided for all STEM students, an enhanced level of support is available for students who become a MESA member. All students enrolled in STEM courses are invited to meet with Ms. Gutierrez, MESA Center Coordinator, to review the benefits and responsibilities of MESA membership.
