Hellman Summer Science and Math Program
The aim of the Hellman Summer Science and Math (HSSM) Fellows Program is to share the excitement of learning about science, while at the same time giving students tools to succeed in those same subjects. It is a four-week residential program for students who have an interest in science and math. HSSM provides selected students with a rigorous academic transition to college, in which they prepare for science lectures and laboratories, while at the same time learn how to manage their study time. Over the four weeks, Hellman students participate in approximately 70 hours of class time across two course modules (chemistry and biology). This is complemented by 42 hours of structured study time, interspersed with leadership development and team-building activities, introductions to key areas and resources on campus, weekly educational and social outings, and introductions to library and computing services available at Mills. Hellman students consistently cite their participation in this program as one of the most meaningful, useful, and memorable aspects of their college experience.
