Conference at UH opens doors for new scientists, engineers

HOUSTON, Sept. 27, 2004 A new generation of scientists, engineers and mathematicians will converge on campus as the University of Houston hosts the Fourth Annual Houston-Louis Stokes Alliance for Minority Participation Conference October 1-3.

As part of a national NSF-sponsored program to help more minorities earn degrees in science, technology, mathematics and engineering (STEM) disciplines, as well as prepare them for graduate study, the Houston-area consortium, also known as H-LSAMP, is led by UH and includes seven other academic institutions of higher education. A national program, LSAMP seeks to build productive capacity and output within institutions with significant enrollments of minority populations of Hispanic, African-American, Native American and Pacific Islander descent underrepresented within STEM professions.

Others in the H-LSAMP consortium include Texas Southern University, UH-Downtown, UH-Victoria, Rice University, Texas State University, Houston Community College System and San Jacinto College District. The group also enjoys a good partnership with Houston Independent School District, heavily recruiting eligible students to attend institutions in the alliance.

Put on by H-LSAMP, the conference is open to anyone who wants to register and attend, including LSAMP members from around the nation. There will be workshops for various graduate and undergraduate programs, GRE classes, exhibitors recruiting students and poster and oral presentations for prizes.

Student presenters at this year's conference will include past H-LSAMP scholars who have gone on to become medical students, practicing engineers, high school science teachers, computer programmers and middle school counselors, as well as those embarking on the pursuit of graduate degrees that range from applied mathematics to political social work.

Conference speakers are Jaime Borras, vice president and technology director for Motoro
