The Buffalo Region SUNY Alliance for Minority Participation (SUNY LSAMP) is a student enrichment and support services program sponsored by the National Science Foundation (NSF). The goal of SUNY LSAMP is to increase the numbers of students matriculating into and successfully completing high quality degree programs in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) disciplines in order to diversify the STEM workforce. Particular emphasis is placed on transforming undergraduate STEM education through innovative, evidence-based recruitment and retention strategies, and relevant educational experiences in support of racial and ethnic groups historically underrepresented in STEM disciplines: African Americans, Hispanic Americans, American Indians, Alaska Natives, Native Hawaiians, and Native Pacific Islanders.
The SUNY LSAMP program is not funded to support students declaring majors in pre-medicine, pharmacy, nursing, or allied health sciences.
