Description:
Established in 2004, the goals of the WiscAMP program are to:

•Increase retention through academic enhancement programs and services that focus on tutoring, mentoring, supplemental instruction and peer support.

•Increase recruitment and retention by increasing mentoring skills of graduate students (and future faculty members) that provide oversight for undergraduates participating in the summer undergraduate research experience programs.

•Increase recruitment and retention by allowing participating institutions to propose institutional or regional-based initiatives that best suit their local needs.

•Focus on faculty development and alliance building by creating a STEM "network of champions" among faculty and administrators within the alliance. This network will share best practices for diversifying student populations and improving the institutional culture related to diversity issues.

•Focus on staff development and alliance building by establishing regional working groups to facilitate information flow among alliance members.

•Establish enrollment and degree baseline levels and track these data for all institutions in the alliance.

WiscAMP will address retention and persistence of underrepresented minorities in STEM disciplines by expanding and improving on successful models already in place and fostering and sustaining an alliance among partner institutions.
