In support of Richland College's mission, the STEM Advising's purpose is to foster relationships with Richland students. STEM advisors provide academic support and guidance to empower students to achieve educational and career goals to become successful in our ever-growing and changing the world.
CTE/STEM academic and career advisors are available to help students in many ways. We connect with advisees during via walk-in, e-mail, or phone.

Services we provide:
CTE/STEM advisors can assist any Richland student to navigate the transfer process to a senior institution. CTE/STEM advisors offer each student with whom they meet a transfer guide to their senior institution for their particular program of study. Visit Texas College and University Transfer Resources to find more. Additionally, each spring semester, the Center hosts a Bachelor of Applied Science Fair featuring all schools who offer B.A.A.S. degrees for technology students.
In addition to personalized advising in your specific program of study, students have the opportunity to receive scholarships through the Dallas County Community College District Foundation and the CTE/STEM Institute. STEM students may find a list of all scholarships either through DCCCD or, external to the District, on the STEM Resource Center Facebook or eCampus/Blackboard pages.
The STEM Resource Center is the only center on campus that offers to tutor in upper-level MATH, Engineering, Computer Science, and/or Physics courses. Tutoring is offered by higher level students proficient in the course subjects. Even if a student does not need tutoring, the STEM Resource Center is a great place on campus for group study. STEM students at Richland College may work or volunteer to tutor other STEM students in college-level MATH, Engineering, Computer Science, and/or Physics courses. In order to qualify, students must pass a criminal background check. Please contact Teresa Lynd at Tlynd@dcccd.edu or 972-238-3797 for more information.
The Center promotes all STEM and Technology related internships and career opportunities. Some of these opportunities include job expositions, summer research experiences, and internships across the nation. Additionally, the Center promotes all events and services from the Career Center: richlandcollege.edu/career.
