Colleges and universities in the three-state region of Washington, Oregon, and Idaho have formed The Pacific Northwest Louis Stokes Alliance for Minority Participation (PNW LSAMP). This Alliance will enable educators and advocates from science centers, pre-college programs, community colleges and four-year institutions to leverage their resources, establish new relationships and strengthen existing relationships to increase the number of degrees earned by underrepresented minority (URM) students in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) majors.
The Alliance is administered at the University of Washington’s Seattle campus in partnership with staff from each participating partner. PNW LSAMP partners implement best practices in STEM diversity initiatives that have been disseminated by existing LSAMP programs around the country. Program vision and direction is provided by an advisory board of chief academic officers, diversity officers and deans from participating institutions. The advisory board works to ensure that the commitment to addressing underrepresentation in STEM is both enduring and institution wide.
