Helping others!

Our Motto
Scientists are best developed by other scientists serving as mentors who exhibit and expect scholarly excellence.

The California Alliance for Minority Participation is designed for students in the Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics [STEM] fields.

CAMP-UCR was established at the University of California, Riverside in 1994 and is funded by the National Science Foundation [NSF] and the University of California Office of the President [UCOP].

CAMP-UCR is a program that works to encourage NSF-declared underrepresented students in the STEM fields to successfully complete undergraduate science degrees and further pursue their studies at the graduate and professional level.

CAMP exists at eight of the UC campuses and at various California State Universities, California Community Colleges, independent colleges and universities, and national laboratories that together work to achieve a goal of doubling the numbers of minority students receiving a B.S. or a B.A. degree in the many science disciplines.

The Statewide Operation of CAMP is administered from the University of California, Irvine.
