LSAMP - Southwest Georgia Alliance

The overall mission of the Southwest Georgia LSAMP Alliance is to increase the number of qualified underrepresented minorities receiving baccalaureate degrees in STEM and entering graduate school, and ultimately the STEM workforce. Our vision is to create a diverse STEM workforce that encompasses a culture of inclusion for all in STEM.
