Outreach Team

Deciding which college to attend is a uniquely personal choice. If the minority experience at your future college is an important factor in your decision, then we invite you to explore further. Academy grads are standing by to help!

Academy Minority Outreach Team

Members of the Academy Minority Outreach Team (AMOT), volunteer to share their educational, career, and life experiences with prospective cadets. Most are Academy graduates on active duty. Each cares deeply about diversity and, together, they are committed to paving the way for a seamless transition into Academy life.

Please contact the Outreach Team member of your choice for an authentic conversation about the minority experience at the Coast Guard Academy.
