The STEM Transfer Student Success Initiative (t-STEM) is an innovative inter-institutional collaboration, initially funded by a grant to UMBC from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation (2011-2016). t-STEM partner institutions include Anne Arundel Community College (AACC), Community College of Baltimore County (CCBC), Howard Community College (HCC), Montgomery College (MC) and University of Maryland Baltimore County (UMBC). The Initiative seeks to enhance the success of STEM transfer students, and to develop a national model of collaboration between 2-year and 4-year institutions.
