Houston minority graduation rises in sciences, engineering as result of UH-led alliance

e most effective in the country," said Martin V. Bonsangue, professor of mathematics at California State University, Fullerton, and an external evaluator for phase I. "It is on target with its goal of doubling the number of students who graduate with STEM degrees in five years from the institutions, which is the goal of the national NSF program. Very few programs come close to reaching this vision, and it is among the strongest out of all the LSAMP programs."

A national program, LSAMP is one of a sequence of four NSF programs that seek to build productive capacity and output within institutions with significant enrollments of minority populations underrepresented within STEM professions. The program requires awardees to establish meaningful partnerships among academic institutions in their respective geographic areas and encourages the inclusion of government agencies and laboratories, industry and professional organizations.

As the lead institution of the H-LSAMP consortium, UH will be allocated the highest share of the grant money. Sharing directorship responsibilities, John L. Bear, dean of the UH College of Natural Sciences and Mathematics, and Bobby L. Wilson, provost and senior vice president for academic affairs at Texas Southern University, are H-LSAMP's co-directors. Additionally, all H-LSAMP partners contribute 50 percent more than the one-to-one match required by NSF nationally.

"The excellence workshops integral to the program are designed to develop superior problem-solving skills and are led by upper-level H-LSAMP scholars that also fosters mentoring relationships," Bear said. "Financial support also is available to participating students through stipends for such work as teaching in the workshops, helping with the Web site and working in research labs."

The UH campus, for instance, provides a building on campus where many students with similar majors and minors at all levels from fres
