Colorado Wyoming Alliance for Minority Participation

The mission of the CU Denver Colorado/Wyoming Alliance for Minority Participation (CO-WY AMP) program is to increase the number of historically underrepresented African American, Native American, Latinx, Pacific Islander, and Alaska Native students earning bachelor’s and graduate degrees in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM).

CU Denver is one of the host institutions in Colorado and Wyoming. This program is sponsored by the National Science Foundation; our main administrative office is at Colorado State University, in Fort Collins, Colorado.
