Creative Scientific Inquiry Experience

The CSIE office is temporarily closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Please email us at [email protected] or [email protected] for any questions. 


The Creative Scientific Inquiry Experience (CSIE) is a STEM-related program funded by the U.S. Department of Education that connects students with faculty and with community projects through an integrated science curriculum.

We specialize in creating learning experiences for students in STEM fields through innovative courses and student events. Our courses are 1-2 credit hours, and faculty work with community partners to develop coursework that allows students to work on real-world problems.

CSIE also offers academic support that includes:

  • Book loan program where students enrolled in CSIE courses can check out CSIE/STEM textbooks for free
  • Tutoring
  • Peer mentoring and faculty mentoring

You can find out about our programs for students and training for faculty, as well as information about Math and Science clubs and national organizations on this site.
