MESA provides students with the essential skills and resources to achieve success in school, career, life and STEM-related disciplines. MESA welcomes all students and actively recruits ethnic minorities and females as they are often underrepresented in STEM fields such as computer science and engineering. MESA mobilizes and aligns the resources of diverse educational institutions, industry and other partners to create and implement an integrated program that maximizes impact and outcomes.
MESA Utah is a statewide consortium of people in K-12 public education, higher education, and STEM based industry working to attract underrepresented youth to college programs and careers in science, math, and engineering. Underrepresented youth includes girls and ethnic minorities who typically do not pursue education and careers in these areas.
