Every summer, MASP invites highly motivated incoming freshmen from traditionally underrepresented groups and/or who are first-generation college students to its summer Program for Excellence in Academics and Community (PEAC), a rigorous academic program focusing on intensive university-level material and giving students an opportunity to form a strong community that will serve them during their freshman year and beyond. PEAC students have impressive high school credentials and are among the top students in their schools. This summer program is designed to show students how to go from being outstanding in high school to being outstanding at CU. No matter how prepared you think you are for university life, PEAC will challenge you and improve your chances for success at CU-Boulder. PEAC is tailor-made for students who want to spend four weeks of their summer participating in a challenging and rewarding experience.
