Tennessee LSAMP

Improving STEM Student Retention Via Partnership

TLSAMP in Pictures

Welcome to the Tennessee Louis Stokes Alliance for Minority Participation (TLSAMP) program. TLSAMP is a collaborative effort sustained by a coalition of ten colleges and universities in the state of Tennessee to significantly increase the number of underrepresented minority students statewide. Students must 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.
