CSULB will lead a two-year project called Developing Engaging and Effective Practice: Advancing STEM Education via Univeristy-Community Collaborations through the grant. The project is aimed to strengthen science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) teaching and learning by "fostering partnerships between local after-school programs and informal science education institutions."
A free service called Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA), provided by Cal State Long Beach student volunteers, aims to assist low-income and moderate-income individuals, as well as students, those 65 and older, non-residents, the disabled and individuals with limited English proficiency. This year, it will also provide free tax services for veterans for the first time.
Starting Wednesday, CSULB will now have a modernized digital destination that lives up to the University’s golden reputation; a public face for the campus—and by extension, the City of Long Beach—which will serve as an inviting digital presentation of all that the school and its Southern California home have to offer.
