January 2014 Dear Students and Parents, Happy New Year! At the end of 2013, the DAPCEP team began strategic discussions about the future of DAPCEP and how to maximize the educational opportunities we provide to this community. As we continue these conversations in 2014, look for changes in our programming structure and educational opportunities. You may ask, “Why are they changing?” The answer is simple: Our, goal is for all kids to have a fundamental understanding of STEMM Fields. We see your experience in DAPCEP as the foundation for GREATNESS & SUCCESS! Our team is focused on delivering the best motivation, preparation and exposure to STEMM fields available anywhere. One of the most visible changes in 2014 is the relocation of the DAPCEP office. Our new office will be in the Detroit’s historic Francis Palms Building, located at 2111 Woodward Avenue in Detroit. The new location provides a cost effective venue for collaboration, program development and implementation. We are extremely excited about this change of address; more information will be provided in the future. Thank you for allowing us to share these opportunities with you. Your participation in DAPCEP is an investment in the future. Welcome to DAPCEP!! Sincerely,

Jason D. Lee

MISSION

The mission of DAPCEP is to increase the number of historically underrepresented students who are motivated and prepared academically to pursue degrees leading to careers in STEM related fields through K-12 supplemental educational programming. In keeping with the DAPCEP Mission, we consider all applicants without regard to residence or legally protected status. It is understood that due to the limitations of space in each DAPCEP program, admission decisions of the Program Directors are final.

ADMISSIONS POLICY

The DAPCEP admissions policy is designed to maximize fairness and consideration of all eligible applicants. Each program director or selection committee seeks to have a qualified, balanced, broad base of students, each of whom must meet the eligibility requirements for the desired program. Typically, each program has more applicants than it has allotted spaces. While every consideration is given to maximize total enrollment with as many students as possible receiving their first selection, the numerical realities of the program and its funding will result in some students not getting their desired program or not even admitted to DAPCEP at all. We encourage all students who are not admitted to reapply during the next enrollment period. TABLE OF CONTENTS

If the student is accepted, you will receive an official letter of acceptance and an invitation to the mandatory orientation from the DAPCEP Office.
