Event: STEM Initiatives Virtual Brown Bag Series: "The Ohio LSAMP Alliance"

The purpose of this program is to increase the recruitment, retention, persistence and attainment of degrees in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) by underrepresented students.

Programming that takes place at each institution includes: counseling and advisement, bridge or early arrival programs, tutoring or supplemental instruction, peer mentoring, and faculty-mentored undergraduate research. In addition, alliance-wide programming brings about the institutional changes necessary to support underrepresented students in their goals.
