The Colorado Louis Stokes Alliance for Minority Participation (CO-AMP) is an innovative consortium of fifteen community colleges and four-year institutions, and four Native American tribes in Colorado and the Four Corners region. The Alliance's mission is to double the number of historically and currently under-represented American Indian, African American, Hispanic and Pacific Islander students earning bachelor's degrees in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics.
CO-AMP fills a critical gap by delivering programs to underrepresented students in STEM fields.
No other entity in Colorado has assembled the number of higher education institutions to collaborate on coordinated programs to underrepresented minority students in STEM fields.
CO-AMP has become an academic leader in Colorado for coordinated efforts in minority STEM education programming.
