The goal of the Tennessee Louis Stokes Alliance for Minority Participation (TLSAMP) program is to increase the enrollment and graduation rate of underrepresented ethnic minority students (Hispanic, African-American, American-Indian, Alaskan Native, and Pacific Islander) in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) by at least 100 percent at the end of a five-year period.
The objectives to support the goal 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; and
- ensure that a larger number of undergraduate students are prepared to enter graduate programs.
