As one of the six oldest National Science Foundation (NSF) alliances in the nation, the Alabama Louis Stokes Alliance for Minority Participation (ALSAMP) strives through its 12 member institutions to increase the quality and quantity of under-represented minority students completing baccalaureate degrees in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) fields. The interaction of ALSAMP students and faculty and the facilities are advantageous for all. The undergraduate institutions benefit from having their students participate in research experiences with research faculty, while the research institutions have the opportunity to work with, identify and recruit highly qualified minority students seeking to attend graduate school. The diversity of the Alliance - Historically Black Colleges/Universities, majority institutions, public and private institutions and research and teaching institutions - boast a new era of cooperation as the Alliance seeks to maximize learning opportunities and increase the achievement bar for all ALSAMP students.
The Alabama Louis Stokes Alliance for Minority Participation (ALSAMP) is composed of twelve (12) institutions consisting of seven (7) HBCU's and five (5) majority institutions. The HBCUs are Alabama A&M University, Alabama State University, Miles College, Oakwood University, Stillman College, Talladega College and Tuskegee University. The majority institutions are The University of Alabama in Birmingham, Auburn University, The University of Alabama, The University of Alabama in Huntsville and the University of South Alabama.
In the September 2011 issue, 20 of Oakwood University's alumni who were participants in ALSAMP – Joshua Anthony, Jaysson Brooks, Sheila Cooper, Sonnet Davis, Abdell Ferdinand, Ebony Hammond, Jonathan Henderson, Ashley Humphrey, Symanda Jobson, Jon McIver, Roycelyn Mentor Marcel, Jaysson Brooks, Steven LaiHing, Ryan Lang, Carl Lokko, Talitha Hampton Mayo, Raginee Mendoza, Theodore Nicholson, Victoria Poole, Mustimbo Roberts and Toni-Ann Wright – are highlighted.
