Louis Stokes Alliance for Minority Participation


The CSU Louis Stokes Alliance for Minority Participation, or CSU-LSAMP, is an NSF-funded program intended to support underrepresented students and others facing barriers to success in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) disciplines.  (CSU-LSAMP is funded through the National Science Foundation (NSF) under grant #HRD-1302873 and the CSU Office of the Chancellor.)

Initiated in 1993, CSU-LSAMP is an alliance of the 23 campuses of the California State University (CSU) system dedicated to incorporating a unified approach to broadening participation in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) disciplines.
  Cal Maritime joined CSU-LSAMP in 2013 as the program's 23rd participating campus, making the alliance complete across the CSU system and one of the largest LSAMP programs in the nation.

CSU-LSAMP's overall goal for the project is to contribute to the development of a STEM workforce which is broadly inclusive, globally competitive, and prepared to participate at the frontiers of science. Specifically, CSU-LSAMP aims to:
 

  • Enhance the academic and professional preparation of CSU-LSAMP participants, most of whom are students from underrepresented minorities (URM), for careers in STEM
     
  • Further improve persistence and graduation rates for CSU-LSAMP participants
     
  • Increase aggregate production of STEM degrees awarded by the CSU to URM students
     
  • Increase the number of CSU-LSAMP students who advance to STEM graduate study
     
  • Document, disseminate, and replicate undergraduate intervention models that increase access to, and success in STEM baccalaureate degree programs and facilitate admissions to STEM graduate programs
