Historical Note

The New York State Pew Program in Undergraduate Science Education comprised seven institutions in New York state, working together to improve undergraduate education in science and mathematics.

The New York organization originally was funded by Pew as part of grants to five clusters of colleges and universities, involving 46 schools throughout the United States. (Three additional clusters comprising 26 schools were added in 1989.) In New York, the cluster was formed by Cornell, Barnard College, Colgate University, Hamilton College, Manhattan College, St. Lawrence University and Union College. The program supports a number of activities, including summer research fellowships for undergraduates, curriculum development and faculty exchanges.

In 1999, Pew decided that the program was now successful enough for the institutions themselves to take over. Each institution in the New York cluster said that this program is important enough to fund themselves.
