CSU-AMP Program - Science, Engineering, and Mathematics Division
For students majoring in Science, Mathematics, Engineering or Technology (SMET).
The California State University Alliance for Minority Participation (CSU-AMP) is a joint effort of the National Science Foundation (NSF), The California State University System and participating California Community Colleges.
The overall mission of the AMP Program is to contribute to the national agenda to increase the number of underrepresented minorities receiving B.S.degrees in science, mathematics, engineering and technology disciplines.
Ohlone College is one of the community colleges participating in the AMP Program with CSU Hayward. Each year Ohlone students from the target groups (i.e., African Americans, Hispanics, American Indians, Alaskan Natives and Native Pacific Islanders) and students from other ethnic groups are encouraged to participate in this program.
Students who accept participation in the CSU-AMP Program are pledging to attend a 4-week Summerbridge Institute during the first summer of participation and to participate in follow-up academic year programs as well as other CSU-AMP activities.
In previous years, the AMP students participated in Summerbridge Institutes devoted to precalculus and calculus--focusing on real world and hands-on applications of precalculus and calculus using a graphics calculator. The math level assignment (i.e.precalculus or calculus) of all participants is typically determined on the first day of the Summerbridge Institute.
Participating AMP students will receive a stipend upon completion of the summer program. Books, supplies and a calcular are supplied to all students accepted into this program.
