The Initial Ideas for the START Project
The START project was created to bring a friendlier, more transfer-receptive resource hub for students at CSUN. After looking up existing resources at CSUN, our idea shifted to providing research resources for CSUN transfer students with the focus on creating a transfer receptive culture. With the transition to providing research resources, the name STEM Transfer and Research Training (START) was established.
The START Office’s main goal is to build a transfer receptive culture, promote research opportunities, and offer information regarding graduate programs in the four colleges: Social and Behavioral Sciences, Health and Human Development, Math and Science, and Engineering and Computer Science. However, all transfer students are welcome to participate in our activities and utilize all these resources.
