CO-WY AMP Students

CO-WY AMP (Colorado-Wyoming Alliance for Minority Participation) is focused on minority participation in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math.  CO-WY AMP’s mission is to build STEM equity and excellence.  We provide services from building academic competency, supporting financial needs to navigating the hidden curriculum.  The Centers focus is to provide individual peer tutoring, monetary stipends for participation, recognition of successes, faculty mentors and assistance in future goals.  These services are provided to our members year round during the Fall, Spring and Summer semesters.
