Information for Current Scholars
Annual PATHS Retreat
To foster a strong PATHS community, all participating faculty and students will take part in a 2-day
Colorado retreat shortly before each new academic year. The goal of this retreat will be to promote
teamwork and community through teambuilding exercises, individual assessments and professional development presentations. Returning scholars will
apply the skills and information they learned during their first retreat to provide leadership for the next retreat
and serve as mentors to the second set of scholars.
Mines Ambassadors Information
The PATHS program engages current PATHS Scholars to serve as
ambassadors for Mines in outreach and recruitment efforts at
Colorado high schools and community colleges. Ideally, PATHS
Scholars reconnect with their own high school or community
college to represent the PATHS program and encourage promising
CS student to apply to become future PATHS scholars and, more
generally, to attend Mines.
C-MAPP (Computing-Mines Affiliates Partnership Program) Information
Computing-Mines Affiliates Partnership Program (C-MAPP) is an industry partnership program, started in 2014,

computing students at Mines (e.g., mock tech interviews, programming competitions), and PATHS
Scholars are highly encouraged (and in some cases required) to attend these events.
