A COMPASS Success Story! Read more…

The mission of COMPASS is to remove as many delays or missteps as possible from a student’s path within the STEM fields at UCLA by offering a personalized map or navigational tool geared toward their best-individualized route.

Through coursework, research experiences, student support programs, scholarships & awards, internships, faculty-mentorships, alumni connections, and career placement coaching, COMPASS aims to help students advance through their undergraduate degree and beyond into post-graduate programs while exploring exciting educational and career options they might not otherwise have known existed.

COMPASS is within the Life Sciences Department, however, all UCLA students within the STEM disciplines will benefit from these collected resources.
