STEM and Health Outreach for AHANA (SHofA)

STEM and Health Outreach for AHANA (SHofA)

The STEM and Health Outreach for AHANA (SHOfA) is an organization dedicated to serving students on their journey towards their accomplished careers in STEM and healthcare fields despite the social pressures they may face on campus. The goal of SHOfA is to increase recruitment and academic success of underrepresented students, as well as educationally and economically disadvantaged students, who are interested in pursuing careers in the STEM professions.

Through SHOfA, students, alumni, professors and faculty are brought together in order to encourage one another to achieve academic success as BC eagles.
