The objective of CAMP is to strengthen the quality and quantity of underrepresented students receiving baccalaureate degrees in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) at the University of California (UC). One way CAMP strengthens, and prepares, students in STEM disciplines is through its programs. Incoming freshmen have the opportunity to apply for the CAMP Summer Science Academy (CSSA), continuing students may participate in How to be Successful in STEM (HTBSS), the CAMP Summer Research Scholars (SRS) program is designed for students conducting undergraduate research, and the CAMP Alumni Roundtables program is designed to prepare CAMP students for graduate school and/or industry.
