Southern Launches Alliance for Minority Participation Program

The Nutmeg State Louis Stokes Alliance for Minority Participation (LSAMP) program brings together the four regional public comprehensive universities in Connecticut with the primary goal of increasing the number of STEM graduates from underrepresented minorities (African Americans, Native Americans, Hispanic Americans, Alaskan Natives, and Native Pacific Islanders).

Southern, the lead institution for the Nutmeg State LSAMP, recently celebrated the acquisition of a prestigious five-year, $3.2 million grant from the National Science Foundation (NSF) in support of LSAMP and is now recruiting students for the fall semester.

Therese Bennett, professor of mathematics and SCSU co-principal investigator along with Klay Kruczek, and Sheila Carmon, LSAMP project director, appeared recently on WTNH’s Connecticut’s Morning Buzz with Alyssa Taglia to discuss the LSAMP program and how interested students can apply.
