HBCU-UP stands for Historically Black Colleges and Universities Undergraduate Program. It is a nationally-recognized program funded by the National Science Foundation, geared towards enriching the education of students attending HBCU’s and pursuing careers in the science, technology, engineering and mathematics (or STEM) disciplines. At DSU, these majors include:  Biology/Forensic Biology, Chemistry, Computer and Information Sciences, Mathematics, and Physics/Pre-Engineering.

 


The SMILE Project

The Science and Math Initiative for Learning Enrichment (SMILE) Project is a unique program exclusive to DSU STEM students. The project involves several components which enhance your academic success and involvement at DSU. SMILE sponsors your New Student Orientation for STEM majors and your STEM Training Camp. The project is also at the heart of your Learning Communities. SMILE sponsors your Peer Mentors and Peer Leaders, and gives you the opportunity to participate in Undergraduate Research at Delaware State University. Your success at DSU is only a SMILE away!
