The Pre Professional Programs, P3, is the umbrella name for our two programs, Collegiate Science and Technology Entry Program (CSTEP) and Cornell Professional Opportunity Program.

P3 is a programming and support initiative housed in the Office of Academic Diversity Initiatives for the purpose of recruiting, preparing and graduating underrepresented, economically disadvantaged, or first-generation students to the Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM), and Professional fields.

P3 students are offered the opportunity to explore their fields of study through hands-on experience, support, and mentorship; also gaining skills that prepare them for life in the professional world and beyond.
