Description:
The Colorado-Wyoming Louis Stokes Alliance for Minority Participation (CO-WY AMP) is proud to represent sixteen Colorado and Wyoming institutions of higher education as part of the National Science Foundation’s framework of colleges and universities that comprise the LS-AMP network. CO-WY AMP is currently represented by five Hispanic Serving Institutions (HSIs) and one Native American-Serving, Non-Tribal Institution in Colorado.

In October 2016, CO-AMP became CO-WY AMP with the addition of two Wyoming partners, University of Wyoming and Central Wyoming College.

Since CO-AMP's inception in 1996, the Alliance has been an innovative consortium of institutions increasing the quality of education for underrepresented minorities (URM) in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) fields and has built an infrastructure for collaborative programs and activities. During the last twenty years, CO-WY AMP has significantly impacted participants to make profound and successful changes in their academic careers and their lives. Over the years, CO-WY AMP has also integrated minority students into college life, initiated early STEM advising and mentoring, enhanced state of the art interventions to increase the number of underrepresented STEM students, and increased communication of effective programming across our partner institutions.

CO-WY AMP also has associations with American Indian tribes (Southern Ute, Ute Mountain Ute, Northern Arapaho and Eastern Shoshone) along with numerous corporations, governmental agencies, professional membership organizations, and community groups. These collaborations continue to provide insight into the ever-changing direction of technology and offer career opportunities and internships to underrepresented minority students.
