Welcome to CSU-LSAMP!
The California State University Louis Stokes Alliance for Minority Participation (CSU-LSAMP), with NSF Support, was initiated in 1993 to serve as a comprehensive California State University (CSU) statewide program dedicated to broadening participation in STEM disciplines.

At the time the Alliance was established, it included 16 campuses of the California State University and was gradually expanded to include all 23 universities of the CSU. Hence, this project is truly a comprehensive effort of the CSU, the largest system of public higher education in the world, located in the largest and most diverse State in the Nation.
2015 CSU-LSAMP IMPACT REPORT

CSU-LSAMP PROUD PUBLICATION ~ October 20, 2015
CSU-LSAMP PROUD is the annual online publication of the California State University Louis Stokes Alliance for Minority Participation. This publication features outstanding students from throughout our Alliance, who are being recognized in our new Program Recognizing Outstanding Undergraduate Distinction (PROUD). These PROUD scholars have distinguished themselves in many ways: through their academic achievements, research experiences, service to their campuses and communities, post-graduation achievements, and through their compelling personal stories.
In this publication, we present biographies of 200 of our students to illustrate how the NSF’s support of the CSU’s efforts to develop the talent of its richly diverse student population has contributed to meeting the nation’s need for a broadly inclusive STEM workforce to advance the progress of science.To download this report (.pdf), click here.

LSAMP: Aiming High and Making a Difference tells the story of Louis Stokes Alliances for Minority Participation
Program, including the program’s history, theoretical underpinnings, programmatic structure, and outcomes. The story is told primarily by LSAMP administrators, faculty, staff, current students, and alumni who were interviewed for the
Becoming a Scientist or Engineer: Your Pathway to the Future with LSAMP is intended primarily for high school and lower division college students from racial/ethnic groups historically underrepresented in STEM fields. The goal of this video is to motivate these students to pursue majors and careers in STEM, and to encourage them to seek out LSAMP or other programs that provide support and enrichment experiences to help facilitate their success.
