Mathematics, Engineering, Science, Achievement (MESA)

MESA Mission

The Mathematics, Engineering, Science, Achievement (MESA) program empowers underrepresented students by providing community that supports your pathway to higher education in STEM, through mentorships, academic programs, and interactive workshops.


MESA believes there are many benefits of a diverse and inclusive workplace. Therefore, our programs are targeted to increase representation of women, African Americans, Latinos/Hispanics, Native Americans, and Native Hawaiians/Pacific islanders in STEM fields.

MESA is nationally recognized for its innovative and effective academic development program. Washington MESA is one of the 11 “MESA States” in the national MESA USA network. For more information, visit MESA USA.
