The Michigan-Louis Stokes Alliance for Minority Participation is a partnership between University of Michigan, Michigan State University, Wayne State University and Western Michigan University. The primary mission of the MI-LSAMP program is to significantly increase the number of minority students earning baccalaureate degrees each year in science, technology, engineering and mathematical fields from the participating universities of the alliance and prepare them for entry into graduate programs.
This mission supports the National Science Foundation’s strategic goal to help create “a diverse, competitive and globally engaged U.S workforce of scientists, engineers, technologists and well-prepared citizens." Each university has been and will continue to be committed to increasing the diversity and excellence of their student population.
