Science Technology Resource Center

Programs of the Science and Technology Resource Center (STRC) focus on providing increased opportunities for our students, strengthening faculty skills, and enhancing instrumentation and technology at the college.

The STRC has won awards from the National Science Foundation (NSF) to establish a Cybersecurity Regional Center, CyberWATCH.

With its multi-state partners, CyberWATCH has trained faculty in information assurance and has develop a strong network security curriculum at community colleges in the region.

A STEP program grant from NSF has provided funding for the development of interdisciplinary modules and linked courses to help students succeed in mathematics (STEM) courses and for activities for STEM Collegian Center students such as field trips, research, civic engagement, and performance awards. In relation to the success of the Collegian Center and the STEP program, the college was recently awarded a $500,000 S-STEM grant from NSF to offer scholarships to support the Collegian Center students.

The college also received two Minority Science and Engineering Improvement Program grants, funded by the U.S. Department of Education. These grants have provided significant infrastructure support for computer laboratories and computerized classrooms for our mathematics and developmental mathematics programs.

The College and Career Transition Initiative (CCTI) program is on the campus as well. CCTI is a national program with partnership sites throughout the country. Funded by the U.S. Department of Education and the Office of Vocational and Adult Education and administered by the League for Innovation in the Community College Consortium, CCTI has as its goal effectively moving students from high school through college and on to careers. PGCC was chosen to provide national leadership through the initiative in Law, Public Safety and Security, one of the five occupational focal areas for CCTI.
