Mission

The Center for Universal STEM and Humanities’ mission is to actively engage in the convergence of science, technology innovation, engineering, mathematics, and the arts centering the histories and cultures of Black and other Indigenous People of Color; providing identity-affirming platforms to empower youth to contribute to the discovery and expansion of STEM globally that will prepare middle school students to succeed in high school and beyond.

Vision

We are committed to cultivating and sustaining a community learning center rooted in equity, diversity, inclusion, accessibility, and cultural liberation with an emphasis on culturally-responsive STEM literacy.

Philosophy for Teaching and Learning

The Center for Universal STEM and Humanities is committed to cultivating and sustaining a community school rooted in equity, diversity, inclusion, accessibility, and cultural liberation with a STEM literacy emphasis.

Students, families, educators, and community partners will work to understand and apply critical consciousness that authentically interrogates existing education policies, practices, curricula, and systems to co-create culturally inclusive and responsive transformative education that amplifies young scholars’ identities.
Student voice and family engagement are critical to every facet of the school design, professional development, and instruction.

Design Principles: Identity, Community, Pathways

Authentic educational spaces nurture your spirit, cultivate your identity, and amplify your voice.

Co-construct teaching and learning environments in which Humanities are integral to the understanding and application of STEM to advance classroom and local community relationships.

Mentoring partnerships create education and career pathways for students.
