CSUB Receives $500,000 from Chevron for STEM Programs

On March 10, 2010, California State University, Bakersfield (CSUB) was presented with a $500,000 contribution by San Joaquin Valley Chevron North America Exploration and Production Company. These funds will support two initiatives aimed to fill the gap that exists in Kern County between available jobs and a locally-trained STEM workforce (e.g. skilled workers in fields of science, technology, engineering and mathematics). Kern County has a significant need for STEM professionals who have roots in the community and have inclination to remain local after obtaining an advanced educational degree.
