AMP (the Louis Stokes Alliance for Minority Participation) is an alliance of two- and four-year SUNY institutions funded by the National Science Foundation with the goal of increasing the number of underrepresented minority students completing STEM (science, technology, engineering, mathematics) degrees.
C-STEP (The Collegiate Science and Technology Entry Program) 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.
Together, the AC² (AMP & CSTEP Community) Program at SUNY New Paltz is a program of academic support and enrichment for students intending to major in the STEM fields and certain majors leading to licensed professions. The goal of the program is to increase the number of economically disadvantaged and traditionally underrepresented students who earn degrees in these areas.
