The Mott Community College LSAMP is designed to assist students in developing the skills and learning the strategies that will guarantee their success in the fields of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics. In 2017, a five-year grant was awarded to MCC so that we could build a program to support students interested in a STEM Career/Program. As a result of this funding, students who are admitted into the Mott LSAMP Program benefit from a unique combination of academic, financial, and social support systems.
The Louis Stokes Alliances for Minority Participation (LSAMP) Program is aimed at increasing the quality and quantity of students successfully completing science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) baccalaureate degree programs, and increasing the number of students interested in, academically qualified for and matriculating into programs of graduate study. LSAMP supports sustained and comprehensive approaches that facilitate achievement of the long-term goal of increasing the number of students who earn doctorates in STEM fields, particularly those from populations underrepresented in these fields
The coalition was created to help significantly increase the number of underrepresented minority students statewide who complete undergraduate degrees in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) fields. This goal will be accomplished through the implementation of a comprehensive and integrated series of recruitment and retention initiatives that address key transition points from undergraduate recruitment through preparation for graduate school. The promotion of undergraduate research will be a key component of the comprehensive strategies implemented.
