The Virginia – North Carolina Alliance for Minority Participation (VA-NC AMP) program at Elizabeth City State University conducted a five-week, residential, pre-college enrichment program for 15 incoming freshmen STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) students from June 23 to July 27, 2012. Participants took courses with the assistance of undergraduate peer mentors – currently enrolled upper class students at ECSU — and received six college credits in English and mathematics. Faculty advisors taught group learning activities designed to improve communication and interpersonal skills. Students also were involved in activities to enhance critical-thinking skills.
