This pillar supports the research and fundraising needs of our community partners by leveraging the human and material resources of the colleges.


In Spring 2022 students from several STEM courses were partnered with community organizations in support of urgent matters in our community.

Students in Professor Pete Chandrangsu’s course worked with the Latino/Latina Roundtable of Pomona and San Gabriel Valley on a series of discussions on the role science in understanding health and wellness during the pandemic and beyond.

Students in Professors Ethan Van Arnem, Jason Tor (Integrated Biology and Chemistry), and Katie Purvis Robert’s (Advanced Chemistry) partnered with the Robert Redford Conversancy, CASA Pitzer, and the CEC to support the Adelanto Water Project and the initiatives of Councilmember Evans and local organizations (ICIJ and El Sol).
