AMP is an alliance of 2 and 4 year SUNY institutions funded by the National Science Foundation with the goal of increasing the number of underrepresented minority students completing STEM degrees.
- C-STEP (Collegiate Science and Technology Entry Program)
C-STEP is a program funded by the New York State Department of Education to increase the number of historically underrepresented and economically disadvantaged undergraduate and graduate students who complete professional or pre-professional programs of study that lead to professional licensure and/or careers in mathematics, science, technology and health-related fields.
