Founded in 2005, the Scientific Scholars Achievement Program (SSAP) is a student-initiated, student-led academic support program. Its mission is to advance the fields of science, mathematics, and health by creating leaders who can meet the demands of a culturally diverse society.

The mission of the Scientific Scholars Achievement Program (SSAP) is to support the development of a diverse body of individuals who will advance and enhance STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) professional fields in an endeavor to meet the complex and evolving demands of a culturally heterogeneous society.

SSAP provides tutoring in introductory and gateway STEM courses and encourages collaboration among classmates. All questions and learning styles from students are welcomed and encouraged in our program. Through educational and social events, SSAP aims to build community between faculty and students studying math and science at Occidental.
