What is CO-WY AMP?

is an innovative consortium of fifteen community colleges, four-year institutions, and four Native American tribes in Colorado and Wyoming 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 643 students in 2014.  CO-WY AMP is funded by a grant from the National Science Foundation with Colorado State University as its headquarters.  Visit the CSU CO- WY AMP website
