Enhancing Your Skills & Exposure in STEM
The Tennessee Louis Stokes Alliance for Minority Participation (TLSAMP), supported by the National Science Foundation, is a partnership of six major institutions of higher learning in the state of Tennessee. Each partner institution is responsible for the development and implementation of strategies geared toward increasing undergraduate retention and graduation rates of its science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) majors.
Tennessee Louis Stokes Alliance for Minority Participation (TLSAMP) is a partnership of the following universities:
With institutional support, the alliance's goal is to double the number of underrepresented minority students who earn bachelor's degrees in the STEM disciplines and to encourage more of our degree recipients to pursue graduate studies in these fields.
The objectives of the Alliance are to:
- recruit underrepresented students to pursue science or engineering as a career
- improve the quality of the learning environment for underrepresented science and engineering students at all schools
- ensure that a larger number of undergraduate students are prepared to enter graduate programs
