Initiated in 1994, with support from the National Science Foundation, the California State University Louis Stokes Alliance for Minority Participation (CSU-LSAMP) Program is a comprehensive statewide project dedicated to increasing the number of students who have faced or faces social, educational or economic barriers graduating from campuses of the California State University with baccalaureate degrees in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) disciplines.
The CSU-LSAMP Alliance, with NSF support, was initiated among 16 campuses and has gradually expanded to include all 23 full-service comprehensive universities in the CSU. In Phase I (1994-1998) and Phase II (1998-2003), San Francisco State University served as the Alliance's lead institution. California State University, Sacramento served as lead institution for the Phase III project period (2003-2008) and continues to serve as the lead institution for Senior level (2008-2013).
To broaden participation of LSAMP students in graduate study, CSU-LSAMP has also established Bridge to the Doctorate supplemental activities at San Francisco State University and California State University Los Angeles during Phase III and will plans to include California State University Los Angeles, Northridge and Cal Poly Pomona as the Bridge to the Doctorate sites during Senior Level CSU-LSAMP
