This guide was created as a resource for the 2018 AASHE conference.

What is LSAMP?

Valencia College is a two-time recipient of the Louis Stokes Alliances for Minority Participation (LSAMP) “Bridges to the Baccalaureate Alliances” grant, funded by the National Science Foundation. The goal is to double the number of under-represented minority students who pursue bachelor’s degrees in STEM fields. 

The LSAMP grant provides:

  • Scholarships and research stipends so that students in the program will receive funding to help professors conduct research.
  • New STEM career “skillshops” – occasional lecture series in which professionals in STEM careers come to campus to talk about their jobs.
  • An annual undergraduate research colloquium, at which students from the three colleges will showcase their research.
  • Seminars and summer workshops for Central Florida high-school STEM teachers.

Sustainability at Valencia

Valencia College defines sustainability as resilient economic, social and environmental systems that enhance quality of life for all community members present and future.
