of Program Administrators for CSTEP and STEP (APACS) was formed
in 1997 by STEP and CSTEP professionals to support, advance and
meet the issues of promoting and advocating the philosophy of equity,
access and excellence in education throughout New York State. APACS
achieves its goals by:
and effecting the recruitment, retention and graduation of underrepresented
minority and economically disadvantaged students in scientific,
technical, and health-related fields and the licensed professions,
and facilitating research, conferences and other related activities,
access to programs of higher education,
and stimulating professional development,
data collection for program evaluation, and
and promoting the development of policies and guidelines governing
STEP and CSTEP programs.
APACS is open to all full and part-time professionals and/or staff
associated directly with the STEP and CSTEP programs. All programs
who are current members in good standing (i.e. annual dues paid
in full) are eligible to vote in APACS elections and meetings.
more information on membership
are 51 CSTEP and 50 STEP programs located at New York State colleges
and universities. CSTEP (the Collegiate Science and Technology Entry
Program) and STEP (the Science and Technology Entry Program) have
been sponsored by the New York State legislature since 1986-87.
These programs are supervised by the New York State Education Department
Office of Higher Education.
