Welcome to the UT System LSAMP Program! Minimize    

A message from Dr. Ben C. Flores

Since 1993, the University of Texas System Louis Stokes Alliance for Minority Participation (LSAMP) has sought to increase the number of underrepresented minority students pursuing degrees in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM careers).  The alliance has also encouraged these individuals to earn Baccalaureate degrees and pursue a graduate education in the state of Texas through valuable research opportunities

We are extremely proud of our accomplishments to date but we realize the tremendous challenge that lies ahead. Tough challenges call for tough goals and actions.  As we intend to double the number of baccalaureate and graduate degrees awarded to minorities (women, Hispanics, African Americans, and Native Americans) by 2015. 

Join us in our effort to make Texas one of the top, highly educated members of the Union.


Dr. Benjamin C. Flores
