The Louis Stokes Louisiana Alliance for Minority Participation is a comprehensive, statewide, coordinated program aimed at substantially increasing the number and quality of minority students enrolling in and completing baccalaureate degrees in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) and subsequently going on to pursue graduate studies in STEM disciplines.

LS-LAMP is currently in Year 1 of Senior Alliance (2010-2015). The LS-LAMP Strategic Implementation Plan was developed based on experiences in Phase I. It provides a clear, comprehensive and detailed roadmap for the achievement of the goals of LS-LAMP. Its sub-objectives and action steps address individually recruitment, systemic mentoring, retention, graduate school attendance, enhancement of institutional infrastructure, curriculum reform, institutionalization of LS-LAMP and acquisition of external funding for the continuation of LS-LAMP beyond NSF support. Achievement of the above objectives is a fail-safe means of attaining the LS-LAMP goals of increasing minority participation in STEM disciplines and success in graduate school.
