What is CO-AMP?
The Colorado Louis Stokes Alliance for Minority Participation (CO-AMP) is an innovative consortium of fifteen community colleges, four-year institutions, and four Native American tribes in Colorado and the Four Corners region working to increase the number of underrepresented minorities earning bachelor's degrees in Science, Technology, Engineering or Math (STEM). The number of minority students earning bachelor's degrees has more than doubled since 1995 with 215 students to 495 students in 2010. CO-AMP is funded by a grant from the National Science Foundation with Colorado State University as its headquarters. Visit the CSU CO-AMP website.
