By infusing the fundamental values of Community, Family and Collaboration  into all elements of the program, ANSEP builds a welcoming university environment and provides a cornerstone for success. The program is focused on creating new professionals in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) among indigenous students, although others interested in these subject areas are welcome to join.
