The PIER Program

Introduction

Pathway for Inspiring, Enriching and Recruiting (PIER) is an initiative through the College of Science and Engineering at Angelo State University to provide underrepresented secondary and college students direct exposure to STEM fields.

This initiative is critical for improving recruitment and retention of students in West Texas. During 2019-20, Halliburton is funding the program which has allowed the college to provide activities and virtual resources in geosciences, physics and math for teachers and students in West Texas.
