The Michigan Louis Stokes Alliance for Minority Participation (MI-LSAMP) was initiated in November 2005 with a grant from the National Science Foundation. The MI-LSAMP partners are recognized as “flagship” institutions in the State of Michigan and represent the diversity of public doctoral research extensive institutions in the nation. The alliance universities are:
- University of Michigan / Community College Partners
- Michigan State University
- Wayne State University
- Western Michigan University
The overall goal of the MI-LSAMP is to significantly increase the number of under-represented minority students earning baccalaureate degrees in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) fields from the participating universities and prepare them for entry into graduate programs.
