The Miramontes Arts & Sciences Program (MASP) supports high-achieving traditionally underrepresented undergraduate students who want to be a part of a diverse academic community. MASP provides its students with a supportive community of students, faculty and staff; participation scholarships; academic research opportunities; and a dedicated space for community activities, study and seminars. Because of the support MASP provides, its students consistently perform better than their peers at CU and have a higher than average retention and graduation rate.
“One of the best and most enduring ways I give back to my community is through my academic success. Giving back to the community means doing my best and setting a good example for everyone. Being a successful student does not only benefit me personally, but makes me a better and stronger contributor to the program, thus benefiting others and ensuring the program’s legacy.”
“As a CU student and member of the program I act in accordance with the Colorado Creed. Beyond treating others with the utmost respect, in this community, I will contribute to the welcoming and supportive environment that is essential to our cumulative success.”
